Today is Thursday… I’m still having to deal with the fact that week is practically over and I don’t know where it went. I wanted to join in on two little link-ups today, because I find them totally appropriate for the moment.
… to have coffee, cake and two apricots for breakfast once in a while
… to miss my mama like crazy
… to be completely and utterly in love with your dog
… to think that said dog is absolutely adorable when she cuddles with her toys
… to want to trade lives with said dog or the neighbors dog as they lay around and take in the sunshine (for a day)
… to have a sink full of dishes … it’s actually kind of gross and I’m avoiding the kitchen so I don’t have a meltdown
… to get dolled up just to sit around the house
… to not get out of your sweats all day
I’m thankful for …
… the monsoon that we got yesterday, it cooled things down a lot
… the little rain that Colorado got
… the fact that my friends and family are safe and away from the fires as of right now
… my husband, family and friends
… the internet and the ability to do my job and classes all from the comfort of my home
… my clients
… my life
Sometimes the little things get overwhelming. Sometimes I don’t see the big pictures because I’m so concentrated on the little things. Sometimes I get so stressed that even ice cream and a bubble bath can’t calm me down. I take for granted what I’ve got and always want more. I forget to be thankful that I’ve got a roof over my head, food on the table, a loving and caring family, friends who’ll be there no matter what, unconditional love from a little dog named Lilly, a good job, an education and so on. I forget that there are millions of people out there who never had the opportunities that I had, and only dream of half the life I have. Really, I feel ashamed that I’ve been so ungrateful for all the good in my life.
And yes, the weather here is still hot, but it’s only temporary. Come September it’ll cool down and I’ll once again be able to breath normally.
SEEEEEE… this too shall pass.
Hope you all are having a great Thursday!
Keep Colorado in your thoughts and prayers. My beautiful state is being destroyed.
