Sense of humor

goofy

I am SO glad I have a sense of humor. Without it I would die. No…. literally die. There are so many things that make me sad, confused, flabbergasted. I can read an article or hear a news story and my heart just breaks. But then I try to find one …

Harder to write

cop

I am finding it hard to write a gratitude journal every day. Not because I don’t have things to be grateful for every day, but because it is not in my nature. I am forgetful, I am lazy, and I am easily distracted. But I will push on and try, …

Gratitude for talent

microphone

I am VERY grateful for my talent. I think I have talent in quite a few things, and that is good, because I am lazy. So being talented in a number of areas helps, but sometimes I don’t appreciate that talent, or rather,  I don’t feel like using it. I …

Grateful for patience

hourglass

I am grateful I have patience. I am fairly slow to anger. Some people may not think so, but if I blow up, it’s because it’s been building and I have been patient. And been patient….. and been patient. Yes, I can get annoyed, but I am willing to wait …
