However, I'm going to plow through that and write the gratitude list:
#12. Good books...I just (finally!) started reading Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul, by John and Stasi Eldgredge. So far, so good...maybe I'll write a book review in a few weeks.
#13. Employment...the fact that I have a part-time job, and some income.
#14. The roof over my head, a place to sleep, food in the fridge, and money in the bank account.
#15. My first attempt at braiding my own hair...I have resolved that I will learn to braid my own hair by the time I'm 25. A month and a half to learn.
#16. The music of Jason Crabb, Steven Curtis Chapman, and others. Songs that lift my spirits.
Jason Crabb, "Let Mercy Hold You"
Steven Curtis Chapman, "Fingerprints of God"
#17. A cup of warm black tea.
#18. That afternoon nap...it's been a very long week!
#19. Tomorrow's SPRED session...working with those kids always cheers me up...and then the chance to go to confession in the afternoon, to prepare for Holy Week!
#20. The ability to write this gratitude list, even though stress and worry are weighing me down again.
God Love Y'All!
