It’s a great day to be alive!
I know the sun’s still shining when I close my eyes.
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood,
but why can’t everyday be just this good.
I hadn’t heard that Travis Tritt song in years when it came on the radio yesterday. I forgot how happy it makes me feel.
It’s a goofy thing, but I just gotta say, I’m doin’ alright.
It makes me happy because it’s not about falling in love or having anything spectacular happen, just happy ’cause I’m alive and I can be happy.
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood, but why can’t this be a good day?
It reminds me to just take each day one at a time. Sure, I’ve got a pile of laundry that could do stunt work for Mt. Everest. Yeah, I’m dragging a load of debt. But what’s to keep TODAY from being good?
I got rice cookin’ in the microwave. Man, if he can be happy about rice (microwave rice to boot!) then surely I can just be happy for this.
Daughters who consider each other best friends, or as my two-year-old says it, “We’re beft fwiends.”
Family that loves each other and loves God.
A husband who loves me. (Pardon the really old photo, apparently we need someone to take some new photos.)
And so much more. Yessir, today’s a good day.
That pile of laundry? Well, I’m thankful we don’t want for clothing.
Dishes to wash = full bellies.
Bills to pay = a home, running water, a paying job.
Computer work to do = people who care. ( Thanks Lois for checking on me and all my homeschool buddies for allowing me to do school pictures.)
I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet, but I guess I’m getting in the gratitude frame of mind.
On another somewhat related note, Thank YOU! to our veterans. You are true heroes, and I appreciate your incredible service to our country. May you have a blessed day in spite of last week’s horrible events.
