attitude of gratitude...

day 3:

i am grateful for medicine.  yep, you read that right!!  i think sometimes we forget the small things that can make a big difference in our lives.  i am one that suffers from allergies and it is NO fun at all when i can't stop sneezing, my eyes are watering and swollen and i just feel like crud.  i have done pretty good this year without having to get a shot or take much medication.  though when i got home today...i thought i was going to pass out from all the sneezing that i couldn't even catch my breath.  i am truly thankful for those that research and make these medications to help people like me who suffer dearly.

it's the small things people...it really is, lol.  grateful for my allergy medicine. {and any other kind that makes me feel better when i don't feel so hot, oh nyquil is another...}

find something today that you are grateful for.  it may be something you just have never thought of before.

day 2:

tOdaY i am so grateful for laughter.  you know they say it is the best medicine and i truly believe that.  whether i am alone, with someone, watching tv, listening to a joke, reading something that makes me belly laugh or just being silly, i can't help but burst out in a smile and laugh.  there have been many times in my life that laughter has truly healed my soul.  having inside jokes with others have been great reminders that we all need to laugh a little bit more in this life.  that no matter what our life is like you can ALWAYS find something to change your mood and allow yourself some laugh time.  i am grateful to share many inside jokes that keep me smiling and laughing, even when everyone else isn't.  i am reminded by this picture how much fuN and how many times we just laughed...

mona, leah & me! jerome, az.

today i hope someone or something just makes your day and you smile big while burst out loud in laughter!!  try it...it's great medicine.

what is something that truly makes you laugh? 
for me...it's my inside joke about bowling! 
 (no one has a clue why i'm smiling big, except you) ;)

attitude of gratitude...

day 1:

i am so grateful for the month of november.  it is a great month to remind ourselves of all the things {big or small} we should be grateful for.  i hope you will take this challenge with me. write, blog, facebook, journal, create or whatever you wish, just commit to the 30 days.  it's never too late to start.

today i am so grateful for this beautiful soul!! 

her name is marcie roberts and we have been friends for over 25 years.  we have had our share of ups and downs.  though we have always been there for each other.  we have laughed, cried, sang "pour some sugar on me" at the top of our lungs, been there for each others marriages, important events, birthday dinners and for girl time.  not sure what i would do without her in my life.  she is so funny and talks so stinkin' fast that sometimes you have to ask her to repeat what she said, lol.  she makes the best rice krispie treats!!!  my life has been truly blessed because she is in it.  thank you marcie for never giving up on me or our friendship. 
tOdaY what are you grateful for?
