Counting My Blessings

Sometimes life sucks.  Right now, life sucks.  So right now, I'm going to count (some of) my blessings.  I have more than I can count, and if I don't remind myself of them it will seem like everything is awful, when it's just one thing that is all black and spiky-feeling.

Jamie.  I don't deserve him, but he loves me and I love him and need him and am so grateful to have him as mine.

Gisèle.  She is amazing.  She is so much more talented than she knows, and is growing into such a beautiful girl, inside and out.  I am blessed to be her mom.

Miles.  He is such a funny, cuddly, loving little boy, and we're so lucky to have him.  It's so much fun to watch him as he learns and grows.

My family.  I love and am close to both my family and Jamie's, and I know how rare that is.

My good friends.  They love me and support me and believe in me.  They know my true character.

Our house.  It's a wreck right now.  A bit of a money pit.  But we have one, and after all of the repairs it's going to be solid and beautiful.

Our neighbors.  They're wonderful.

Jamie's job.  He's been there a long time, and is well-regarded by the company. 

The kids' schools.  They love it there and I'm thankful they're getting a good education.

San Antonio.  For being so close to Houston and for housing a company that is employing my dad.  Having family finally close enough to visit - and for it to be my parents - is such a blessing.

Our kitties.  They are rescues and we lucked out - they're adorable, cuddly, and full of personality.

My car.  I've had it for a year and still love it as much as when I first got it.  We're lucky to have such a nice vehicle.

Starbucks.  I'm thoroughly addicted, but love knowing that there's something that can brighten up my day that is never too far away.

Nail polish.  So many colors! Buying a bottle can cheer me up without breaking the bank.

Music.  There are so many songs that speak to me right now, and Jamie has a knack for finding them and sending me the lyrics.

Social media.  People may complain, but the family and many of the friends that I love live far away, and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram allow me to stay connected.

God.  For giving me peace in the midst of chaos, and for giving me these blessings and so many more.
