call me a freak.
doooo it.

but i get my inspiration most when i'm playing music.
cleaning comes in second place.
odd...i know.

i was cleaning this lovely sink of mine
and thought,
"i am very grateful to be here!
cleaning this sink...
and welcoming my husband home shortly.
i would rather be nowhere else."
then i chuckled.
because my thoughts are so scattered and silly.
i am done complaining about my terrible job.
because at least i have one.
i'm also done complaining about how much taxes are.
at least we have the money to pay taxes.
my husband leaves his shoe collection all over the house.
BUT i am fortunate to have a loving hubby.
gas prices are extremely high.
i am blessed to have a car.
i don't want to eat wheat ever again. it makes me sick.
well hey! at least i am alive.

life is very very pleasant.
YOUR life is good, too.
there are always a million reasons to smile.
and a countless amount of reasons to be happy.
you were given this life because you were strong enough to live it.

now be happy about your life. and smile. a lot!
and if you can't find enough reasons, ask me to tell you why your life is great.

    It's the small things - even the complaints, we are fortunate to have some of the complaints we do!
