i journal gratitudes. it has begun to change me. i tend to be a worrier. yep worrier-not warrior : ).  sometimes fears creep in. i have found you cannot simultaneously feel fear and gratitude at the same time. you just can't. when the fear starts to creep in, i try to stop and see the beauty all around me. it's there and then faith replaces fear. there's something about writing it all down that makes it work.

today i am thankful for~

*sun so bright i had to draw the blinds
*yummy fresh produce for a salad
*the last meal shared with a college son heading back
*white chocolate
*a library just 2 blocks away
*a sweet note from a friend
*time to try something new
*laughing with a friend
*a pretty good hair day
*wet puddles where snow was yesterday
*helpful salespeople
*knowing how to drive a stick shift
*good advice
*a completely quiet house midday

~ nothing earth shattering, just simple blessings.
   whew now i feel better.

xo, beth
