Grateful

I am grateful for the bus that comes too freaking early, because it makes me wake up and enjoy the beautiful morning.

I am grateful for a new day.

I am grateful for the overload of lessons I teach each day, because it makes me use my talents and find joy in helping others.

I am grateful for my talents.

I am grateful for my insane daily schedule, because it makes me treasure the little stolen moments with my husband and children.

I am grateful for my family.

I am grateful for an imperfect body, because it makes me try harder to be healthy.

I am grateful for health.

I am grateful for the hard times, because they make me realize the good times.

I am grateful for life.

  2. Every coin is double sided, isn't it. It's that whole opposition in all things. If there were no bad, you wouldn't recognize the good!

  12. The bit about trying harder to be healthy...yes, I so agree.

    I'm thinking of starting up yoga classes once a week, and dusting off my mat & DVDs and stretching myself into a limp noodle again. I love it, I miss it, I need to take time for it, you know?
