Gratitude: February

It feels like I spent the month of February trying to get as settled as possible in the one room hotel room  serving as home for 10 weeks. In the stress of this time of transition, I have definitely struggled to stay positive. However, I am happy I decided to keep a gratitude journal through this process. Finding at least one thing good about each day has definitely provided some much needed perspective around here.




February

1. My love of sports and the perspective to remember that in the end, it is just a game.

2. Dinner ready with I get home from a long day

3. The snooze button.

4. Daydreaming with Jeff about our future (with an accompanying excel spreadsheet).

5. Unanswered prayers, and the faith to trust in God's plan.

6. A TV show that gives you the good cry you have needed for the past month. Thank you        Parenthood, I will miss the Bravermans.

7. Time spent with my amazing aunt.

8. Patience.

9. Hearing one of my favorite songs on the radio and singing along to Rascal Flatts', "Bless the Broken Road".

10. That awesome message your scalp gets when the hairstylist spends 10 minutes washing your hair.
