on a day like today

Some days (liketoday) i am just proud of myself for getting out of bed in the morning.
Things i am grateful for today:

1. the sun. yesterday there was a tremendous storm that brought freezing rain.  monday we had a few inches of snow.  i laughed to myself because i know God at times throws us a curveball because he can.  Just to remind us that we are not the ones who make the flowers grow.
2. thursday is one day away from friday.
3. yesterday i was watching oprah and she was telling me to only take what i need. (ironic, coming from the richest woman on the planet, right?)  today i have everything i need, in fact i think im gonna have some chocolate for breakfast because i can.
4. new carpet coming tomorrow!
5. .........i'm running late and i will have to fill in #5 later

About only taking what we need, you have to love these pieces of esoteric wisdom that don't really make too much sense if you think about them.

Particularly since every person in this world has their own opinion about what is a want and what is a need.

Post carpet gifs!

Chocolate for any meal is always awesome. While I can I almost never should but always do.

Much truth in this one ... It's good to be thankful for the moment. It's good to look forward to tomorrow. It's good to be open to new things!

Yours sounds like the perfect philosophy to me. (Flexibility goes a long way.)

Thanks for this reminder to be grateful. It's so easy to overlook and take for granted the good things in life. Chocolate for breakfast? I had that yesterday!

Namaste..........cj

Gratitude has saved my poor life more than once. lol

I'm so glad to have found you...your job sounds great, but I'd probably cut MYSELF hiding the scissors....

Happy Friday.

I want to, first of all, thank you for commenting on MY blog!! You really made my day, even though it's been a month before I found it (almost)!
Second of all, I really like your post here. It reminds me of my mom because she has me and my brother say 5 things that we're thankful for when we turn into school right before we get out and most of the time, if we have time, she says her 5 things too.
Thanks for sharing!
