When things aren’t going as well as they could it’s easy to focus on the challenges. Keith will tell you I’m a pessimist but I prefer to think of it as being realistic and my way of dealing with stress is to think things through and decide what I’m going to do about the problems I’m facing. As long as I have a plan I know I can get through anything and in spite of recent challenges, I have a lot to be thankful for.
Today, among other things, I’m thankful for the following.
A good night’s sleep
That Keith can spend Thanksgiving with his mother
That Chesty has progressed from pain to itching and that the Benadryl is helping to control that
The Turkey and Dressing I’m going to eat later
A HeartStrings sew along this holiday weekend that gets me back in the sewing room
New carpet and a somewhat decluttered home
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
