My friend Shawnda committed to blog ten things she is grateful for every day until Thanksgiving, and I thought it was a fantastical idea! What's sad is I'm not sure that I can come up with ten things every day (that sounds horrible to admit out loud!), but I'm going to give it a shot. I'm going to shoot for ten and take what I get. Baby steps, right?

1. I'm grateful for a God who loves me even when I'm less than faithful. This morning I felt like a train wreck with a horrible headache, so I went back to bed instead of taking my kids to church.

2. I am SO grateful for a roof over my head, heat, electricity, warm water and even some luxuries like internet and phone. Especially right now when I have no job and I am reminded once again that it could all go away very easily.

3. I have good friends. I love getting the random text message through the day or a call (even at 1 in the morning) just to say hi or tell me something funny.

4. My cousin Michelle. She's the closest thing I have to a sister and tomorrow she is being sworn in as a lawyer because she has worked so hard to complete law school while having a family. She really has worked hard and has now completed her masters degree and now law school. She puts my lazy butt to shame! But she inspires me to achieve and I love her.

5. The fall. As it is disappearing right before my eyes, I am reminded how much I love it and can't wait to see it again next year.

Ok, I made it to five. Gotta pace myself or I might pull a muscle or something!
