Some Times

Some times it is hard to appreciate as opposed to complain. My life has been a mess over the last 5 years, but you know, I am alive, I am healthy, and I have this day to turn it all around and I pray that I have the next day to do the same. God Bless every one here and I hope that you appreciate what life has given you, some things are harder to appreciate than others, but it all has a purpose!

Sometimes its hard to see good things when life has got you down... but you know what? There are good things everyday. They dont have to be huge. It could be something as simple as having a purring kitty sitting on your lap comforting you, or the sun shining brightly in the sky. Maybe it's catching a warm breeze while sitting on your deck outside or hearing the birds first thing in the morning. I know this all probably sounds corny, but if you try to find a little bit of happiness and goodness in every day (even on the days that are REALLY difficult for whatever reason) it makes a huge difference in how you can handle the hard times.

Not corny at all!!!! Those simple things can clear the air for a moment and allows your mind to reflect on the wonderments of the world. You are so very true grumblebee!!!!!

I'm appreciating Advil, my paycheck (just arrived whooee!), sunshine and my family that I love so much.

I like this thread luvs. Good reminder to appreciate stuff everyday. We so often get caught up in our worries and cares we forget to stop and say thanks for what we have.

HURRAY FOR ADVIL!!! I'm semi-handicapped due to a leg injury/surgery, & of course now arthritis & rheumatism have set in. Advil has become my best friend - lol!!

Today I most appreciate having wonderful parents, having my own 21-acre farm - something I thought I'd NEVER ever have - the absolute lovliness of the day, & an actual "plan" as to what I'm going to make for dinner - lol!!!

i appreciate my buddy asking me to be the best man in his wedding. it'll mean a trip to ireland next year, so i'm keeping fingers crossed that i'll be able to make it.
i appreciate that i'm getting to take a dayy off tomorrow to work on the yard and garden.
spring is here, my lawn is starting to look good, and the veggie garden is going in tomorrow, a few weeks earkier than in a normal year. i was able to sucessfully harden off the seedlings very early this year since it's been a fairly warm spring. gonna have termaters before the 4th, i hope.

dw wants to hire a landscaper since my time is so limited, but i don't think she understands that i actually like taking care of the lawn. it's a guy thing.
