trying to be thankful on this Thursday…

okay, one good thing – no boss at work this morning so I can grab some down time. but bad thing that I really want to whine about – yeah, I’m still at this job. sigh

I’m trying really hard to not let it affect my attitude but some days, like today, it feels like a losing battle. I’m not able to shrug off the little stuff like I used to, and of course now I have serious doubts that the “little stuff” really is little stuff. It seems like it’s much more an ongoing atmosphere of disorganization and chaos. Some of which I contribute to, I’ll be honest. I am not the most organized person. I know this. But when the basic tools are missing, it’s harder than usual to be organized.

Okay, I’ve completely gone off track here. Thankful Thursday, that’s what I intended to write about. Things I’m thankful for, what’s positive in my life, getting myself in a better frame of mind.

So, first off, I am so very thankful for the most wonderful boyfriend a woman can have. The love I feel for this man, and receive in return…it’s a wonderful thing. As people keep saying, we (boyfriend and I) are just so darn cute together. And they’re right, we are.

My kids – sure, they’re “typical” teenagers but they’re really not. They have their ups and downs like the rest of us, but they truly are exceptional people. Messy, but exceptional.

My family – so incredibly supportive, even when, or maybe especially when, I can’t step up and pull my own share. They’ve held me up more than they realize over these past several years.

Friends – yep, got those. More than I know, I think. It’s still very hard for me to ask for help, but I know they have my back, when I need them.

There’s food on the table, the bills get paid. I’ve been able to buy shoes lately. All good things. 🙂

Chocolate…there is chocolate waiting for me when I get home tonight. A very good thing. 😀
