Patience. Prayer. Puppies.

I wrote that title for a completely different post, which I deleted because I just wasn't feelin it.

I actually also deleted the 2nd post I wrote as well.
Third time is the charm?
When I'm really frustrated I have a hard time getting the words to come.
I'm not having the best day.

I know the best cure for that is gratitude.
I'm so grateful for a husband who still loves me if I go a week without shaving my legs. He's an answer to years and years of prayers. I plan on spending my life trying to repay him for all he's done for me in just over a year!
I'm grateful to have a best friend for a sister who will waiting in line with all the 5 year olds so I can fulfill childhood dreams and meet Cinderella. I guess we can still be friends even though she's moving in a few weeks and I'm kind of depressed about it.
I'm grateful for good music that keeps me going.
I'm grateful for Christ and all he's saccrificed for me. I'm grateful for this season and the reminder to be more like Him. I'm grateful for the help He gives me every day. I'm grateful for his love for me.

I understand about having bad days. I'm so glad that you can turn to all those wonderful things you are grateful for. It's the time of year to really reflect and to be surrounded by those we love.

keep smiling.
