The Little Things in Life...

It seems like lately I have had my share of bad luck. First of all it all started with me and my husband getting a divorce, if that wasn't hard enough, I found out that our hunting dog had cancer and we had to put him down, oh and to top it all off I recently found out that I was getting laid off of work. Single mom being laid off, that's not good! I have found it is so easy to be angry and frustrated with others in these situations, but I have learned that it doesn't do me any good getting angry with others it just makes me a more miserable person. After having some long talks with close friends and family, I realized I need to be grateful for the things I do have and not focus so much on the things I have lost. So that being said, here are some of the many things I am grateful for.
I am grateful for a my home, that I have a roof over my head and a warm place to live.
I am grateful for a family that can help provide for Brynlee and I while I am looking for a job.
I am grateful for my friends that help me out when I am having a bad day.
I am grateful for my animals that we can enjoy as a family.
I am grateful for the challenges I face that make me a better person.
I am grateful for the Lord and all the blessings he has given me.
most of all I am thankful for Brynlee. She is the light of my life. She can change any bad day with her sweet smile. She is my best friend and my angel sent from heaven. I love her so much!
I guess the lesson I have learned is to be grateful for the little things in life.


  1. Why didn't you say anything about work? If you need anything, let me know. I'm glad that you are able to keep such a positive attitude through all of this. Seriously, call me. We'll get together and I can be your sounding board if you want.

  2. I am so sorry for your trials right now. If I could be there to bare them I would. Please know that our family wants you to be happy and wants to help you too. We love you and Brynlee and want the best for both of you! I know I can't do a whole lot 700 miles away, but I am here if you need! Take care. : )

  3. I am glad that you're able to be so positive. Everything happens for a reason, it is always earsier for us and everyone else if he have a positive outlook.

    Like Megan said, if there is anything we can do 700 miles away, let us know.


  4. Bye the way, I sent a bunch of clothes to Rachel. If there is anything you want to borrow, you are more than welcome.

  5. Okay, that last comment is really from Megan!

  6. Thanks guys! I love you all!
