Good morning Mintdom,
I have started and re-started this blog many times this morning. I have so many thoughts going through my head that I am a little overwhelmed, and it is too early in the morning to sort them all out. The main theme though is gratitude – that is clear. Therefore, I guess I think I will make a short gratitude list here.
I am grateful for my faith – without it, I would not be able to do the things that I do – it would be far too scary
I am grateful for my family and friends – without them, I would not WANT to do anything!
I am grateful for my health – it is not exactly where I want it to be yet, but I am making daily progress
I am grateful for my work – I love who I work with, the company I work with, and the work that I do – I love my job!
I am grateful that I have not seen the mouse in a week – I hope MINTor has joined MINTie mouse (as my dad calls them) in the great forest in the sky.
I am grateful for my DVR – I never have to miss a show that I like and I watch on MY schedule!
I am grateful for Mintdom – my readers bless me EVERY day with their encouragements, insights, and love!
I know those are a bit generalized, but in my mind and heart, I see the details, and I already feel less overwhelmed. My heart is full this morning and my sense of being overwhelmed is due to a very full heart. A gratitude list not only clears my head, it is a great way to change a bad attitude or pick me up when I am feeling blue.
