I have always been a "glass half empty" kind of girl. I have been trying lately to be more positive, and be grateful for the things I have instead of focusing on the things we don't. I am sharing this with you because it has changed a lot around here! Jack was sick today and stayed home from school, and I hate to have sick kids because I feel bad when there is nothing I can do for them. But today, I decided that I should be grateful that when they are sick, we have insurance and we have the money we need to buy medication when we need it. I was not able to get my normal stuff done today, but I was grateful that we have enough money to buy clothes for our family, even though it creates GIANT piles of dirty laundry. I was grateful that we have so many toys for our kids that our house is always a mess, and that our kids are healthy enough to make those messes. So you try it, look, around and instead of getting frustrated or overwhelmed, just be grateful. It makes the day a lot more enjoyable.
