A Thankful List

I won't lie, lately life has been getting me down.  Most days it's a struggle to see the point of getting up and doing something.  Other days I bound out of bed only to be struck down with exhaustion from the effort of making breakfast.  Basically, life is hard.

But, I'm determined to not let it get to me.   I don't want to be this person, moping about without direction.  So I've decided that when I wake up I'm going to start with being thankful, and today I'm going to share with you a few things I'm thankful for.

  • I'm thankful I have somewhere to live
  • I'm thankful my cupboards are well stocked
  • I'm thankful to have a large, loving and supporting family
  • I'm thankful for the friends I have
  • I'm thankful that my M.E. doesn't restrict me to my bed most days
  • I'm thankful for the internet (many days would be much worse if I couldn't peek out into the world through my screen)
This is just the tip of the iceberg of things I'm thankful and grateful for.  So, what are you thankful for?

I love this. :)

I'm thankful Ba.D.'s movie wraps filming next Wednesday, so we'll have a little time to sit down and breathe together.

I'm thankful it's Friday, so that I'll have a little time to chill with my son, with no big plans or anything requiring urgent attention for two days!

I'm really thankful for the awesome bloggers I've connected with for the last four months. The words shared on my entries over the last couple of days have helped me find a peace I didn't even know was missing. (Thanks for that!)

I think we ALL need to work on counting our blessings more. It's easy to only see the problems and not all the blessings. Thanks for the reminder!
