I am back to work, and I sure can tell. I had my butt kicked this week. All the things I’ve been doing to take care of myself, half of it went out the window. Some of it is hanging by a thread. I didn’t participate in any of the weekly themes. I didn’t write any new recipes, articles, or other ideas. I was just trying to get by. I am though taking time for gratitude. I didn’t meditate or jot down anything in my symptom tracker app so you’ll only get the handful of days I jotted things down and random stuff. I’ll start with thoughts of gratitude on my mind right now.
I am grateful to have such a beautiful, kind, soon-to-be daughter-in-law. I get the chance to be the mother-in-law and grandmother I want to be. I think I’m not screwing it up too badly. I just love her and hope that she feels the same.
I am grateful to have a job that loves me just the way I am and that misses the hyper side of me. That was just nice.
I am grateful to have a husband that does laundry.
Okay here are the other things I jotted down this week.
I’m grateful my tempeh turned out perfectly!
I am grateful for Megan being a friend to all of her siblings.
Apparently, I put Neil doing the laundry already on the list. So, I guess I’m double-y grateful that my husband does laundry.\
Finally, I made a note of gratitude for my dad living in adult foster care. I forget what a huge stress taking care of him was sometimes and how much easier life is with him living there. I am most definitely grateful for that.
