Tonight, as I get ready to settle down and go to bed, I am grateful for so many things. I had a day full of rest and relaxation because I am on vacation from work this week. Here are some of the things that made me pause and remember how lucky I am.
- After looking in the fridge and determining that we clearly had no food, and that we would all starve when dinner time came because no one wanted to go to the store, my husband whipped up a delicious dinner of pork roast with caramelized carrots, mashed potatoes, and english peas. It was a fantastic meal, I don’t know how he did it – when I looked in the fridge and pantry I thought we were going to have to eat a ketchup and pickled beet salad. My Honey is magic.
- As I am off work this week, I am thankful that I am learning the difference between feeling bored and relaxing. As my days off approached, I was both looking forward to them and apprehensive about taking them. Often when I feel like I don’t have a 2 page to-do list, I begin to feel restless and start to fear boredom. Boredom is one of the reasons that I used to drink, and it scares me when I think I am starting to feel it. I haven’t had any of that so far this week! I have been able to be peaceful and grateful even just laying on the couch and cuddling with my dog. I am starting to feel like my batteries are recharging. That’s definitely something to be thankful for.
- I am grateful for my husband’s t-shirts and boxers because that’s what I wore all day today…no make-up, hair in a ponytail, and comfy clothes. So much nicer than heels and spanx and business attire. I could get used to this!
Tonight I will go to sleep with a smile on my face, I am a lucky girl. 🙂
I would love to see your gratitude lists too. Please share.
