Well, let’s face it. We all have those “woe is me” days, don’t we? And we are all entitled to them while traveling through the various stages of our journey of “this life.”
I was having one of those days just last week…as I was thinking, “All I do is work!” Ha!! Yes, was feeling a bit sorry for myself, as we all tend to do at times. And wow, what a day. I was having a bad one, I tell ya! It was a glorious day outside, and I was inside working. :o
I guess all the “woe is me” days makes us who we are, this is true. But knowing this doesn’t make the “woe is me present day” any easier! We realize this after the fact and we learn from them. =)
Later on during my off day last week, I found myself thinking out loud, and I actually mouthed the words, “Tammy, get a grip, you have far too much to be grateful for, snap out of it!” And indeed I do!
It was then that I started thinking about and naming off each thing that I was grateful for. ;)
#1 on my list is Family
#2 My Husband
#3 Grateful that I have a “stay at home” job
#4 Grateful I have food on my table
#5 Grateful I have a warm bed to sleep in
#6 Grateful for the Grandson that will be here soon (before we know it for sure)!
#7 Grateful for the clothes I have to wear and “double grateful” they are getting looser on me. ;)
#8 Grateful for the sunshine, even though I was again, inside working
# 9 Grateful for the friends that I have both (offline and online)
#10 And finally and certainly not least, I’m grateful for my God!
Are you having a “woe is me” crappy day? What all do you have that you are grateful for?
