So I prayed for peace of mind. I'm praying that my mind will stop racing and that I have the ability to replace the negative thoughts with positive ones.
It's a good day. It's cold outside and I hate the cold but I'm grateful that I'm alive to see it.
I'm so happy that once I decided to pay attention to my budget I was able to make some changes. I signed up for two coupon services which send coupons to my inbox and there's a website out there called couponmom which I visit often which actually has coupons that I can use. I changed my shopping day to Wednesday because my new grocery store does double coupons on Wednesday. I can't wait until the end of the month so I can see if all this really made a difference. I also cancelled my lawn service which will save me about $325 a year. But, I may join a gym, so I'll be breaking even ... sort of.
Even though my child is seriously testing my patience I was grateful that she slipped this under my door on Valentine's Day:
It's sweet. Over the years I've built up quite a collection of her notes under my door.
I'm grateful that even though I still hate my hair, I'm having a pretty good hair day today. And earlier this week the mouth of one of my co-worker's fell open when I told her I had an 18-year old. "You don't look too much older than that yourself," she exclaimed. That was nice.
I have a good life but at the same time I can't ignore the fact that sometimes I just wish I was living a different life. I'm human. Everything isn't perfect every second of every day. But for right now, at this very moment I'm grateful for this life. I'm grateful for the kids, the house, my family, my boyfriend, my church, the support from you my blog family and these ridiculous two inches around my waist ... I'm grateful for it all.
Have a great weekend.
