20 Little Happy Things To Celebrate In Life

I’m always amazed at how God looks out for me.  Yesterday was a YUK day, not sure why it just was.  I had sent a text to a friend that said, “If you’re wondering what kind of day I’m having, I’m drinking a Mt. Dew and on my way to Jungle’s to get a big bottle of wine.”  I hadn’t drank a “real” Mt. Dew in two years, the wine well that’s a different story.  She asked me who I was aggravated at and I said, “The world.” 

I ended up stopping at The Thrift Store and finding “the perfect” little something…more on that later….skipped the bottle of wine, came home and felt sorry for myself.

I woke up this morning dreading doing a Beautiful Life post because I was still “mad at the world”.  Imagine my eye roll when I saw the title and it said, 20 Little Things To Celebrate In Life.  I laughed out loud.

Aren’t we a pitiful bunch, do any of us really appreciate what we have in life?  I know I don’t, but here goes it I’m going to type it, print it, and remember it.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
