The above quote is simply spot on for today’s post, as I dealt with the residual effects from a recent bout of anxiety. Thankfully, it is not an ongoing issue like it once was, and I have a great support system to help me cope with it swiftly and effectively. That said, it has left me with what can only be described as an emotional hangover, but today’s gratitude list really does help deal with this. The three things I am grateful for today are:
- The safe return of my daughters and their dad from their vacation. I was happy and relieved that they had a fun trip together, and I was very thankful and relieved that they had a safe and smooth flight back home, It was a warm welcome home indeed!
- Family dinner. When I refer to ‘family’, in this case, I am speaking of my two daughters and my ex-husband. We have been divorced for three years, but we remain a family of four who just happen to live in two separate residences. My ex-husband and I share a close bond with one another and are committed to being the best of friends to one another and the best of parents for our two daughters. Trust me, I know fortunate I am that we get along so well, and as we all ate together at his home this evening, I found myself giving thanks for the food and my incredible family.
As the final day in the thirty days of gratitude fast approaches, I find myself feeling tired, but happy and grateful. I will be ending this series on a positive note, so, stay tuned!
Just one thing each day . . .
