Counting My Blessings

I've been on the verge of tears or the brink of letting out a bloodcurdling scream for the past few days. Sometimes life sucks.

But don't worry, this isn't one of those posts where I word vomit and tell you all my problems. Instead this is a post where I try to change my attitude by focusing on what's right, not what's wrong, in my life. This is a post where I give thanks. 

Today I am thankful for: 

God's grace, provision, and unconditional love
the lessons God teaches us through life circumstances
the blessings that come from seemingly bad situations
my loving, selfless, hardworking husband
my parents
my little brother
my cousin who is my best friend and the sister I never had
my job at an amazing performing arts school
the strength and abilities my body possesses in spite of a health condition that says I should be fragile and weak 
shelter, food, clothing, and reliable transportation
my passion and talent for writing 
See Jane Write 
all the ladies who take the time to comment on this blog so that I know I'm not talking to myself 

What are you thankful for today? 


  1. Life is all about perspective! It truly makes a difference. My mother always said, "No matter how bad you think you have it, somebody always has it worse." That gives me pause every.single.time. I get frustrated with life.

    1. I'm trying to keep a "This too shall pass" attitude.
