Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

today has just been [ one of those days ].

i started off the morning discovering a huge bill that i don't want to pay.
then worrying about how we're going to pay for this and that, and still make school happen this fall.
wishing we had another car so i could be at my mom's house already.
i have a long lists of things to get done before the end of the day.
bags to pack.
an energetic 2 year old that wants his mama's attention every second and wants to know the name of every single thing in our home.
i got 3 hours of sleep last night.
my thighs feels gi-NORMOUS, my arms are jiggly, and i'm just feeling BIG. period.
and my pregnancy hormones are making me feel irritated at every. single. little. thing.

i knew i was totally over reacting and making molehills into mountains! 
i was allowing myself to be miserable...over nothing! i needed to change ASAP so i took a deep breath and quickly wrote down a page of everything i'm grateful for while my son took his nap beside me.

this act was simple, yet so humbling. this reminder put me in check. i really do have NOTHING to complain over. i'm blessed immensely! i already posses [ what matters most ]. i'm going to smile and be grateful for all that i have...and enjoy these next few days with those i love most -at the river. peace out fellow bloggers. i'm gonna go get my tan on!
