Well, by nature I am a "Glass 1/2 empty" kind of person. I tend to focus on the negative instead of the positive....and I really hate that. Well, today my glass is 1/2 full. It's time I find more reasons to happy then not so here I go:
-I have 2 beautiful, healthy daughters
-I have a perfect son (how many parents get to say that?)who I know for certain that I can see again
-I have a husband who loves me even when I wear my P.J's all day long
-I live in a house and not an apartment!!!
-I have great friends (some near...some far...but friends nonetheless)
-I have wonderful family who I know I can count on
-I can see & smell & hear & touch & taste all the beautiful things this world has to offer
-I have hot water to shower in
-My kids love me (I think)
-We are actually in Dental School
-I have the internet
-My grass is green and the weather is perfect
-My husband doesn't care if the house is spotless (and neither do I for that matter)
-I have a bed to sleep in (I love my bed)
-My kids still take afternoon naps
-I know the purpose of this life
-I've already spoken in church so I won't have to do it for atleast another year
-My neighbors are for the most part quiet
-I get to stay home with my kids.(I never have to miss the best parts of the day! I can barely last a few hours without needing to see them!!!)
-I haven't had to get in my tornado closet yet
-My house is somewhat clean
-I don't have to clean the toilets if I don't want because I am expecting no visitors
-I already know what I am making for dinner
-My kids play & laugh together finally!
-I am blessed beyond measure--in every single aspect of my life
My greatest source of joy!!!
For your sake, I will stop my list right there. Yes, I do have so many things that make my life wonderful! And of course, I know from whom this all comes from. I need to be better at seeing my glass half full...in fact I would say more often than not, that MY CUP OVERFLOWETH!!!
