Thanks A Lot

So. I'm trying to be a better person. Once again, I've been working on personal progress, and one of the goals is to be more grateful; another is to be a peacemaker.

Last Thursday, I was the total opposite of both of those in a very bad, very very opposite way.

Let's just say my kids are lucky that they are still alive.

I decided I needed to repent. So, here's a list of things for which I am thankful. YAY!

1. I'm grateful for sunny days. LOVE the sun.

What a great post, Nat!! I'm grateful for my sis, Nat, and that I get to live by her. We always hoped we'd live in the same city someday, and now we're living the dream, baby!!
