Pity Party - Want to Come?

Earlier this afternoon, I threw myself a pity party and invited my mother. She was sympathetic and let me cry for awhile. Then we started talking about listing our blessings. I told her I would write a blog post tonight and list some of mine...

  • My husband, who brought home a pizza tonight so that I wouldn't have to cook
  • The freedom to worship God
  • Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Pay Day!
  • A cat who hasn't sprayed since his neuter last week
  • Peppermint Mochas
  • A well-stocked library
  • Thirty years of life

I do have a lot to be thankful for. I suppose my pity party should be turned into a thanksgiving prayer meeting instead. Thank you, Mom, for reminding me to be more aware of the blessings God has bestowed!

(((HUGS))) Milestones can do that to us :) A great list of blessings! You have a double blessing today, your 30th Birthday & it's on a Sabbath! Which should make it a 'high holiday' which requires extra special things :) Wish I was there to share it with you! (((((HUGS))))) Miss ya'll!!!
