It’s not my story to tell, but a situation has erupted for a family dear to me this week, and it’s meant that my gratefuls this week are a lot darker than they usually are. Sometimes the things we are grateful for carry so much weight that you can barely shoulder them and that’s me this week.
Again and again all week I have been thinking that I am ever so grateful for…
148. My mental health – my mind is rational, clear and disease free. I think straight, I act when I need to act, I make well-thought out decisions that are balanced and true. I’m not depressed, I’m not anxious, I’m not psychotic. I am healthy and shedding tears as I write for those who are not.
149. Safety – I tuck my children in every night with a little rhyme that says “Safe and warm in your bed, peaceful dreams my sleepy head”. And there they are, snug and safe until morning.
150. Action – sometimes all the talk in the world does nothing. Sometimes you need to abandon all the maybes and just get in there and act. Stand up and scream about it; even when everyone else is seated, when everyone else is silent.
So, what’s making you pause today? Add your I’m Grateful For post to the list below (and please, we love you, but it really does matter that your post is a Grateful one and not just a random), add the button (grab the code from my sidebar and paste it into your post) and pretty-please add a link back to me. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are spreading a little gratitude.
