Living a life of gratitude is hard sometimes. It’s easy to get stuck in complaining and negativity. I’ve been stuck in that place today. I’ve been cranky. Everything and everyone today seemed to be stepping on my last nerve.
I don’t like being there.
A couple of days ago I had a little shopping accident at Walmart. Well actually it wasn’t an accident, I was obeying an order from my daughter. She told me to buy some new clothes. That I desperately needed some new clothes. She was right. So I bought a few things. And today when I brought my cranky self home from and work and changed my clothes, there was the perfect t-shirt waiting. It made me smile. Cause it’s cute. I love the color. I didn’t feel cranky when I bought it. And wearing it actually made me feel less cranky.
So I’m grateful for my silly t-shirt that I can only wear in the house (and on the Internet)…because a 45 yo woman in a cartoon t-shirt is kinda silly out in public.
I’m also grateful that my “silly” button still works.
