Well, it's November now. The month of gratitude and thankfulness. (Yes, I'm aware that that was redundant).
So, I'm going to try something for the month of November, just to help me stay on top of my game, and avoid the "depths of despair" (thank you Anne of Green Gables) during the Holidays.
Recently, I went to an Enrichment night, where we talked about emotional health. The speaker gave such a great message. She said something to the effect of gratitude is the ticket to happiness. Basically, if you think of what you are grateful for in a situation, or in a person, then you'll find joy in it, instead of despair. She passed out this little handout.
In case you can't read that it says: Relax, Reflect, Restore....with the attitude of gratitude.
So, this month I'm going to try to post one thing I'm thankful for everyday.
Today, I am grateful for my wonderful little family.
C & I took the kids to a Weber State Football game. It was fun. We made it almost all the way through the 3rd quarter before the kids got restless, and we had to leave. But, when we left WSU was up 31 to 7 (I think). The kids loves seeing Waldo, the purple Wildcat. (I told them we were going to see the purple kitty, so that was their focus).
I'm so thankful to have a loving husband, and three beautiful, healthy, spunky children!
p.s. don't forget that tomorrow Daylight Saving Time ends. We get an extra hour to sleep in! YEAH!!! I'm thankful for that too!
