Trying To Be Glad

I'm reading everyone's thankful blogs, posts and Facebook statuses.  I love these blogs, because people are really taking time to be thankful and think about all the good in their life.  I'm hoping I can get to the thankful spirit by Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and all because of that focus on the good things in life.

As I've moaned about of late, I'm struggling to find the good right now.  In an attempt to get on the right track, I'm going to do the "Things I'm Glad I'm Not" or "At least I'm not" kind of post today.  I apologize in advance.

At least I'm not Rick Perry, Herman Cain, or anyone running for office.

At least I'm not associated with the Penn State Football Program.

At least I've been married longer than 72 days.  (170 to be exact!)

I may have all sorts of drama in my life, but at least I don't have the shouting matches that the Real Housewives have.  Any city.

Real glad I'm not pregnant.

At least I can look at myself in the mirror at the end of the day, and I'm okay with that person looking back at me.  Although, she really needs to invest in a good eye cream.

Real glad that husband of mine finally saw the light after twelve years.

Real glad that leggings are in style.  They are the most comfortable things on the planet.

I am missing my babies, but at least they are doing well in their lives and working hard toward their goals.

Real glad I live with a fellow animal lover, and that fellow animal lover understands how important it is that we all sleep in the same bed together.  Meow and Woof.

At least we have a short work week next week.  For that, I am already THANKFUL. 

And, I'm real glad you're reading this.  My hat's off to you!

I love this...sometimes when things/life are a little off kilter, it is good to notice the "nots".

hugs to you from GA!

I spend the last 24 hours thinking about this. There are way too many things to list, but I agree with sherri - I'm glad you are a blogfriend!

I don't know, Ju, I kinda of wish you WERE running for public office, at least we would have ONE person we could really trust! Rethink that one, will ya?
