Backstory to this post: I'm currently reading a book called "Worn Out Woman: When your life is full but your spirit is empty". I bought it a long time ago when I was feeling overwhelmed, and (surprise, surprise) was too busy to actually find the time to read it. Lately, I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with crazy stress at work, side jobs I'm taking on (probably more than I should be - still learning to say no), duties at home, prioritizing time for husband, and making time for friends and family. So, I picked the book up again. (I must admit, I'm a bit embarrassed to be reading a book titled "Worn Out Woman" - makes me think of an old, haggard woman who looks similar to a wrinkly witch...but I feel worn out, so, here I am. Don't judge.)
Last night, I read a chapter about gratitude, and found a reference to this poem...so I looked up the rest of it online today and loved it! It's a perspective changer. My additions/edits are worked in as well.
I AM THANKFUL FOR:
