Slice of Life 2019: Day 29
Its time for a spring break attitude adjustment. Grumpiness has colored my temper for a few days, like a London Fog. I know a little perspective and a lot of thankfulness go a long way to lighten the mental load. The load has been a daily grind of life’s responsibilities mixed with slicing and random obstacles to resolve. With the end in sight, I’ve made a list of Friday thankfulness to remind me that God sends golden parachutes everyday. All I have to do is open my eyes.
Today, the sun was shining when I awoke.
There was one last bag of Early Grey on my tea shelf, just what I needed.
When I looked outside, somebody had already let the chickens out.
At my appointment this morning, it became clear that my doctor is beginning to think more like a natural path: “I know you don’t like taking pills. A lot of people don’t like taking pills anymore and I don’t blame them,” he said. Wow!
The doc didn’t think I had cancer!
There was a generic drug available for my prescription that cost 90% less than the original.
A healthy 12 year old sat next to me in my truck.
My husband kissed me on his way out the door.
A friend called and asked me to lunch.
Another called to see how things were going.
My aunt read my blog and responded cute words of wisdom.
It’s a good hair day.
And…all of this happened before noon. This list will be three pages by the end of the day.
The grumpiness is lifting like a San Francisco fog on a July afternoon.
