One of my goals this year was to express gratitude more often. At times, that’s hard with everything going on. Dad’s in a deep depression and I don’t know how to help him, especially when he tends to threaten drastic measures when he doesn’t get his way. Jamey is having so many issues and we’re all still trying to find our way since Mom’s passing. It takes time and work to find those little moments of gratitude. Recently, on one of my posts, a new friend told me about another blog hop that I might enjoy, and while checking it out, I came across 10 Things of Thankful. Exactly what I was looking for!
Each week, the challenge is to post 10 things we are thankful for during our week, or something we’re looking forward to in the coming week. Look for something each day that we are grateful for, and an extra on harder days! I love it.
Saturday, I ended up with whatever bug Mr Edward had brought home from school. Everyone left me sleep!
Sunday, I was starting to feel much better. My crew still allowed me to rest.
Very early Monday, I was finally able to eat something (Being able to eat is a very very good thing.)
Monday, I hatched a Chansey and a Snorlax in Pokemon Go! And they’re both keepers! (Good evaluations!)
Tuesday, I had dropped my lighter in the car and only realised it when I went to the bus stop at Children’s for a cigarette (shush, I know, horrible habit) One of the other Mom’s gave me a light. Believe me, that’s no small gratitude when Tuesday was a pretty stressful day AND Jim took 28 into Pittsburgh. I despise Route 28.
Wednesday, I found the notebook I was looking for with the number I needed to try to get some help with SSI for Jamey.
Wednesday was also a fantastic warm up in weather. Despite the freezing rain in the morning.
Wednesday, Mini Mister had a 2 hour delay. I got to sleep in!
Thursday I finally stuck up to my Dad and it didn’t go badly at all!
And this weekend is now a four day weekend with my Mini Mister. No school on Monday. Another day to sleep in!
I’m going to enjoy this link up 🙂
