So I decided that this year I would only have 12 New Years Resolutions.
One for each month.
The first one is to say out loud every morning 5 things I'm grateful for.
I think for a little while before I say it.
Because when I think for awhile it makes me realize that I am so rich.
I have a home.
It has a little family consisting of a Daddy, a Mommy, a boy, two dogs, and a cat.
I have other family brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins....
I have food and water.
I have medicine if I need it.
I have a coat to keep the wind from my back and the cold from my neck.
I have a car that runs.
I have a job and bonus I love it.
I have all my 5 senses and I can walk and talk.
So because I have all those and I try never ever to take them for granted I notice smaller things.
Today I'm thankful for the bright starburst of Gerber daisies my favorite.
and old yellow stoneware pitchers that you get for a $1.00 at the thrift store
and little boys who buy flowers for thier Mom
and the husbands who take them to get them.
