- Flexibility - I love that I can take what I'm not liking about life and turn and change it and do whatever I think might remedy the situation. I love that the kids are out of school and that if we want to drop everything and run to Ikea for a good ol' dose of Swedish meatballs, we can.
- Books - I'm a huge stickler, during the summertime, about
- Prayer - I'm trying. I really am. These past few weeks have been tough ones. I'm not gonna lie. There is so much to do and so little motivation. The reason I undertook to write this list was that I'd hoped it would cheer me up a bit. I'm still waiting for it to do that. I'm trying to look at the bright side of life. I've been on my knees a lot lately without a lot of apparent answers. I know that I need to keep at it. For today, my goal is to keep a prayer of gratitude in my heart at all times. You know, my life isn't terrible. It's actually pretty darned sweet. It's just a few things that are bogging me down, and they're things I can totally control, but part of that control is the ability to look at them from a different, more positive, what-can-be-learned angle. That is my goal for today.
Today, there's a party to prepare for, we've got guests coming for the weekend, and I've got a walking relay to prepare for. I think I have a new walking buddy, so that should make this preparation a lot of fun.
