I watched the movie, The Bucket List over the weekend and after doing so - I feel very grateful. I am lucky in so many ways and I am so blessed to have things that some others do not. It has been so easy for me to dwell on my "have nots" and instead of focusing on the "have's". I am grateful for all of my friends and family - they help me even when they don't know it and I am glad to have hobbies in my life that help fill a need.
I am grateful for my cross-stitch group of friends as well. They are such a steady support and inspiration and they help me to realize life's great things. I meant what I said when I toasted them at my wedding when I said that everyone should have a group of women in their lives like I do because the world would truly be a better place.
I am back to work tomorrow and I am going to stitch a little, read a bit and just sit back and appreciate this day.
