Time Out: Be Grateful

 Do you ever need a moment to get real, see things clearly and give thanks?
I just did.
Too much complaining has been going on. 

I was still working at 9:30 last night.
But I was working in my favorite chair, in front of the fire with a glass of red wine.

It's cold out and I'm already dreading my long run tomorrow.
But my childhood bff has been freezing all winter up in MI.
My poor grandmas too!

My daughter is getting braces this week. There goes five grand.
But we can do it. 

I have so many great project ideas in my head and no extra time.
But Monday is a holiday.

It's been foggy and sunless all week.
But my yellow roses are so bright and happy.

He sure does put a lot on my plate sometimes.
But He knows I'm tough.

Oh, your yellow roses are lovely, and it is so nice that you are thankful. I love grateful people, and they seem to be the happiest, you know? I hope the new year is being kind to you, love.

Beautiful Roses! Beautiful thankfulness. Everything has two sides and its a good reminder to look at the positive blessings in life that are in everything even what we sometimes complain about!
