Things I Am Grateful For

A sister who answers the phone late at night
Food in my refrigerator.
Good skates
Friends who follow up with me
A boyfriend who makes sure we keep our weekly breakfast date.
A place to live, period.
A warm bed on a chilly night.
Two lungs that work
Two legs that walk
Two eyes that see and ears that hear
Two dreams coming true.
The life bursting at the seams all around me.
A boss who is a friend.
A job that is enjoyable.
A truck that runs.
Roasted beets.

All of these things remind me: sometimes it’s ok to be stressed, because it’s only a bad day, it’s not a bad life. After the tumultuous roller-coaster of the last few weeks, I decided to take a moment and focus on the things in my life that are blessings.
