December 31, 2012 Grateful for the Year

No matter what happened this past year, I can look back and see how much there was to be grateful for, all of the good moments and memories.  A lot can happen in a year, and it is never all bad, therefore a lot of good can happen in a year.

I didn't quite make it to 365 posts, however every day there was something to be grateful about.

Grateful for the year, grateful for the hope and possibilities of 2013.

12-18-2012 Another Year of Living

Every new day we wake up, we should be grateful for being alive.  So, the same thing should be true for each new birthday.  A year of good and bad, ups and downs,   things learned and things forgotten perhaps to be relearned later with an extra dash of wisdom.

Grateful for one more year of living.

12-1-12 Smoothies

I had a free smoothie today. 
I like smoothies.  The kids like smoothies.  I have a friend who sells smoothies so sometimes I've purchased a smoothie because I wanted one and wanted to hang out with a friend for a few minutes.  My kids like smoothies, they are still a treat for them.  I will enjoy buying them and drinking them.

I am grateful for smoothies.

11-22-12 Thanksgiving

What a great day. 

As long as we don't forget it's not just about how much food you can eat.

I was grateful and thankful for quite a few things this day:

coffee, bagels, running, friends, sweet potatoes, pecans, family, walks, kids, Harry Potter, reasonableness, breathable tech shirts, hanging out, sharing, a view of the water, meeting new people, thinking good thoughts and having happy memories, realizing that things are almost never as bad as they seem.

11-21-12 Hanging In There

I think someone asked me how I was doing, and since I was pretty far from having my best day ever I said something like "hanging in there"  (with an implied barely).

But, this is not so bad.

It's actually quite good.

Sometimes that's all you need to do.  You don't have to have your best day ever every day, some days can look pretty bad.  Just make the most of it and get through it.

The better days are just around the corner or maybe even tomorrow.

Be grateful that "hanging in there" is an option, it beats not hanging in there and it also beats stressing out over the fact that you are just hanging in there.

I'll take it.  I'm grateful for just hanging in there.
