focusing on the good...

Oh to be Pablo...he's got the life I tell ya.
It's feeling like a good day to focus on the good. Not because I'm feeling negative...but rather I am feeling grateful. So...here goes...my list of good things...
  • I do believe that winter has arrived...I love winter.
  • It's been cold and rainy here all weekend...and I am loving it!
  • Warm sweats and an oversize sweater.
  • Eating food my hubby cooked...he's the master at cooking breakfast.
  • Doing a few loads of laundry in between assignments...gotta love online classes. Seriously...I love them. It's worth the cost of convenience. (I say as I have yet to pay back student loans...ahem.)
  • The heater works. And I am grateful. There was a time when it did not. So I do not take it for granted.
  • Feeling blessed to have found a good church full of good people. Not perfect people. Or people who pretend to be perfect. But real and good people. It's refreshing.
  • Dinner out with my family. We stopped and got burgers on the way home from church last night...really good burgers. Then we drove home, stuffed to the gills, laughing about I don't even remember what and arguing over who gets the bathroom first! Gotta love free refills! (Sometimes it pays to be the only girl in the house.)
  • I'm loving my spiffed up kitchen...yes, yes, pictures are coming...soon!
  • I am so grateful for a job that fits my school schedule perfectly...and not only is the job perfect but the people I work with are very cool. Yes, it's temporary. But that's OK...I'm trusting God fully with this whole work/school situation. He knows what I need and will provide it all...I need only trust Him.
  • Speaking of work...it's a 4 day work week...that's always nice.
  • A family-filled weekend...I have an amazing family.
  • Hot showers.
  • Knowing that I am moving in the right direction...there is such peace in that.
OK...your turn. What's on your good list?
