Grateful

When I read back through some of my recent blog posts I realize how negative some of them sound. (Debbie Downer reporting for duty!) I'm in an odd place in my life right now, close to completion with one phase and struggling to map out the next one. And so much of that is NOT making the blog, and that's hard too, but I'm working on a solution.

However, I am very aware of how blessed I am. I talk about how sometimes it seems like my apartment is falling apart around me - but I do have a home. I wish for new glasses and think about getting in better shape - but I do have my health.  I complain about my workplace and search for something better - but I do have a job. 

I question my relationships with the people around me.  But I have a friend who remembered I might be alone on a holiday, and I have family, both two and four-legged, who love me.

For all of these reasons and so much more I am grateful for the gift that is my life. Blessed be.

Amen girl.. I truly understand what you're saying. Sometimes it takes whatever amount of time it takes to work thru... and that's what blogs and your bloggy friends are for. You are blessed :)

Blessed be, my friend. I'm grateful for the same reasons you are. You have the advantage over me though as you're still young and very smart. xxoo

Hugs to you girl. :) Sometimes life surely does seem needlessly complicated and annoying, doesn't it?

It's easy to forget all that stuff sometimes. But grateful is a good thing to be and it's nice to be reminded of how lucky we are. Enjoy the season!
