Monkey Madness Monday: Being Thankful
I know, sometimes it's hard, even I am guilty of stressing on the little things (thank you anxiety disorder). But here are the things I will try and focus on my family. Are they perfect? God no, but whose is? I love them with all their quirks and faults and I know they love me despite these things as well.
I'm thankful for my friends. Even if I don't see them as often as I like, I know their always there for me.
I'm thankful for my health. Am I a bit out of shape? Sure. Am I a little crazy? Yes. But I'm living and breathing and that in itself is a gift.
I'm thankful for my girls. Do they drive me nuts? Yes. They're teenagers after all, but I would rather deal with the eye rolls, and the attitude, and the messiness than not having them around. They are my sun, my light.
Think about the things you're thankful for this week, not just the big things, but the little ones too. I'm thankful for fresh flowers, and the scent of basil, and Oil of Olay, and coffee.
We have it good. We really do. Even when it's bad, it's still good in some ways.
What are you thankful for?
My Dad. He's awesome.
