I'm thankful that today I took a short time out of my busy schedule and just enjoyed myself going to yard sales with my daughter and granddaughter.

I had some very bad things happen last month along with some good things.

I am thankful August is done...I don't ever want a month like that again. I will only have good things this month and if bad does happen the good with out weigh the bad.

Last month I am grateful for winning a photography contest in our town where I beat out some very well known photographers. I am grateful my father was alive to see that, he was so proud. He had an accident 4 days later and died 3 days after the accident.

I also am grateful I lost my job...I know sounds odd but I hated it. It drained me and made me miserable. I am one who will keep a job until I find another which I was in the process of. I didnt' get fired my position was eliminated... Timing was off, two weeks after my dad died exactly but this way I can take time to grieve and spend time at the gym keeping my mind busy.

Both of these combined gave me the push I needed to go do a class and become a CNA then start classes for nursing while I work as a CNA. I had been thinking about it for over a year. Seeing my dad in the hospital and watching his nurses and CNAs and my cousin who is a CNA take care of my dad made me realize that it was something I could do. But then the job...why would I just quit a job to pursue something else. I am brain washed to always think I need a job I believe. Well losing my job with a class starting a month later was the sign I needed to just do it. So those two things falling so closely together makes me grateful of what seems to be horrid timing.

Sept I will be grateful for the classes I am starting and the time off before hand to get my mind right and exercise as much as I can.

- mom wants to come here for Labor Day

- new coffee pot

~ Cute pictures like the one Ruth posted. =)

~ The smell of a cool morning after a rainstorm. (Very, very rare in Utah!)

~ The beautiful mountains I live right next to.

~ The approach of Autumn and the lovely colors I'll get to see during hikes.

*weekends
*spray and wash and hairspray (we washed a pen the other day and it got on all of our cloths that were in the wash/dry with the pen and I washed everything again using spray and wash and hairspray and it came out of everything besides my husband's shorts-which had the pen in the pocket... we did not have to go spend money replacing everything)
*having tomorrow off with my husband
*school starts on Wednesday this year not Tuesday
*the scale went down
