Not Drinking Wine, So Having A Little Whine

I do not like it when my friends are hurting. I do not like it when I haven't gotten the results of my pap smear. I do not like it when my bathroom light bulb is out. I do not like the fact that my dog and cat are so old that I worry that I'm going to find them dead when I come home from work. I do not like my Internet being broken. I do not like finding a black widow in my bathroom and smushing it with toilet paper then not being able to find it in the toilet paper wad. And it being too dark in the bathroom to really see because the light bulb went out. I do not like it when I know I have to be to work tomorrow by 7! I do not like it when I emotionally eat. I do not li...... Oh, wait! I can hear my mother calling me. No! Actually it's a chorus made up of Irene Branch, Carol Jean Schoenrock, Karen Petersen, and Joe Fortenberry saying.... YOU NEED TO MAKE A GRATITUDE LIST!!!!! OK. I'm grateful that God is working in my friends' lives even if it doesn't feel like it. I'm grateful for my friends. I'm grateful that Dr. Finklestein said "everything looks and feels 100% normal". I'm grateful for my ability to laugh. I'm grateful for 2nd and 5th and 3,784,536th chances. I'm grateful for my iPhone. I'm grateful that, today, my dog and cat were alive when I got home. I'm grateful for my wonderful children. I'm grateful for 207. I'm grateful for inner voices of my mom and Carol Jean and Karen and Joe and all the people who give me guidance and walk with me and help me live my life. Thanks for listening to me. I feel better. Love you, Jenn
