I have had a bad week at work this week. In fact, it has been one of the most challenging weeks that I can remember for years. It would be really easy for me to get wrapped up in the drama and hassle but I am choosing to get past that and focus on the good in my life. Do we really take the time we should to reflect on the things that we are thankful for? I am thankful for the big things - a loving family, good health and a job in this tough economy but I also want to focus on the little things that we often overlook.
I am thankful that the sun is finally shining for more then one day in a row! The weather here in Maine has been very rainy this summer and it nice to finally get some real summer weather!
I am thankful for the air conditioner at work and my fans at home. They make these warm days much more enjoyable.
I am thankful that I lost weight at my last weigh-in. The bad week at work has been a challenge for me but I am determined to get back on track.
I am thankful that I have a teenage son who still says "I love you" every time we end a phone conversation.
After this week, I am thankful that tomorrow is Friday (I think I will be able to make it!) and that my vacation is 15 days away.
I am thankful that Home Depot has many many paint colors. I didn't like any of the colors that I brought home last week so I went back last night and picked out 5 more paint chips. Who knew there were so many shades of yellow?
I am thankful that my husband put screen and/or new screen on all of the possible places in our house that he thought a bat could get in.
I am thankful that I have some really amazing friends like Mary Ellen. She is an incredible woman and has been a friend for many years and I really look forward to our Girls Weekend Away next year. We will be 50 and fabulous in 2010! I am also thankful that she will reach the 50 milestone before me! :)
I am thankful that I have a hubby who asks me how my day was and actually listens to me complain.
What are you thankful today?
Here's to appreciating the little things.
