today.

i am having a big, BIG case of the grumps today.
just warning ya.
but instead of griping about all the crappity crap crap that is happening, i'm gonna be grateful--list style.

***

things for which i am grateful.
by amy jupin

coffee
warm socks
hugs from my office mate
happy emails
encouragement
dishwashers
crockpots
pretty much all small appliances


progress on the bathroom
my jesus calling book
ben's giggles


good progress reports
bedtime
videos of davis
overnight mail service
prayers
yoga pants
sunsets
quiet and stillness
wet doggie noses


leftovers
my parents
glen hansard
kate
warm quilts
hugs
hope

 
tomorrow is a new day, another chance to live.
how blessed we all are.
let's not forget, ok?
and if we do (let's face it, crappy days will come!), let's be gentle on ourselves and remember what goodness surrounds us.
xo.

have you read a book called 1000 Gifts by Ann Vos Kamp? Should be able to get it at target. A great read on how to change our perspectives and grow in faith despite despair in our lives. Keep moving forward.

We have those honeycomb tiles in our girls bathroom...love them! And I have the aqua mason jar, too :). Your list could be mine...maybe we are actually the same person? JK. I hope your days have been better since! xo

Feeling better today? I love Glen Hansard as well. Him and Alexi Murdoch can soothe me back to feeling peace...if I am a lucky girl and can let things go for the day.

Hope things look up soon. I know it can be hard. Big hugs.
