I've been feeling kind of miserable lately, with house issues, spraining my ankle, getting a head cold, and then a stomach bug, so I think I should start doing this too.

Some basics...
- not so sick I can't go to work
- I have a job to go to
- a roof over my head
- food to eat
- wonderful family
- being sick is helping me lose weight :lol:

Beverlyjoy 09-12-2011 12:59 PM

2sw33t - so glad you posted. :)

Gratitudes always help put everything in perspective.
