My dear friend Rachel made me a calendar that has a monthly theme.
The theme for March was Gratitude.
I have so much to be grateful for. Sometimes I forget to stop pushing and just sit back and be grateful.
I hosted a big dinner party here last Saturday night. I worked hard to get the house spit spot, Courtney worked hard to create an amazing meal and together we created a glorious evening. I am so grateful I have a home. I'm so grateful I have THIS home. (So are my kids--I told them we were moving this morning as an April Fool's joke--they panicked and freaked out! Not funny, I was told.)
I'm grateful that I have an ex that pays me support faithfully--his leaving me enabled me to create my business and follow my dream.
I'm grateful my kids are happy and healthy. It was a tough road to get them here but they have arrived.
I'm grateful for high speed internet. And my phone.
I'm grateful for my amazing family, who I realize is even more amazing than I thought almost every single day. They are people I actually WANT to hang out with. Not sure many can say the same for their families. I realize it is unusual.
I'm grateful for clients that drop into my lap and for opportunities that pop up out of nowhere.
I'm grateful for the opportunity to write without worry of censorship.
I'm grateful to be 36, single and the mom of two kids. It isn't where I imagined I would be but now I can't imagine being anywhere else.
