Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Thankful Tuesday

Real quick post today as it has been a crazy day. I dragged myself out of bed to catch up on e-mail before jumping in the shower and heading to an eye doctor appointment. But, not before taking the dog out to pee, which took FOREVER. So, I was late to above-said appointment but thankfully didn't have to wait long. My doctor even told me I could have brought Morris with me! She dilated my pupils, and I have very sensitive eyes, so I couldn't drive home. I had to crash at my parents' house, which was only five minutes away, for two hours while my eyes readjusted to light. I had lunch with my dad and we caught up, then I had to rush home to finish work, which I did. At 7 P.M. Ugh. So now, forgive me for being selfish, I want to chill on my couch and catch up on the DVR.

Three things I'm grateful/happy for today:

1. The eye doctor telling me my eyes have gotten BETTER, not worse! Yay!

2. Being able to spend a quality two hours with my dad. Just me and dad. That doesn't happen often anymore.

3. Morris not having an accident in the house today... so far... knock on wood.

What's on your Thankful Tuesday list? Let's hear it.

I love taking time to appreciate the little things, and like you I've had one heck of a day!

Here's my list:

- Having supportive family, friends, and customers. Sometimes I feel like they are the reasons that the world turns 'round.

- Thoughtful people. It amazes me that some people can be so considerate of others. I'm forever grateful to have thoughtful people in my life.

- Breathing room. Today I've had more breathing room than I thought I would have. Tuesdays are usually awful, and while today wasn't just dandy, I'm thankful that I had room to breathe and that I found things to be thankful for. :)
