Well… today I am grateful for having a living alarm clock. I slept in, didn’t hear my alarm go off once – my daughter luckily came in and woke me up. I also woke up to a beautiful pre-dawn sky and saw a spectacular sunrise this morning on my way to work. It was nice to see the sun – even though it was brief (the clouds have since moved in again).
I am deeply grateful today to some very dear friends of mine, who when I feel like I am stumbling/ crashing/ burning, consistently are there when I reach out for help. I have never been very good about reaching out – have always in the past kept my troubles to myself, but I am learning this year that I just can’t do it alone. I am grateful (so much) for being able to be myself with them. They let me rant, cry, laugh, whatever – and they don’t let me be hard on myself. You are beautiful and you know who you are.
I am grateful for my life. I have two wonderful daughters – who are the reason I am here. I get to help others for a living, be creative and express myself artistically every day. I am healthy. I have a house that protects my family and keeps us warm (now that I fixed the furnace and put weather stripping on the new doors the rental company installed – holy gale force wind!). I have food on the table (not now but you know what I mean). I have a loving family – brothers sisters dad, whom I love deeply. I have some wonderful friends. I have a lot and I am grateful for it all.
