Really, I do!
I make myself visualize all the good things in order to not go crazy-insane with all the 'non-blessings' that pop up on a regular basis.
:: picture me with fingers plugging my ears, head down, eyes closed, rocking back and forth while whispering nonsense ::
So, I am not going to write about all my blessings.
Instead, I am going to post a few confessions in the interest of full disclosure.
Because I am betting you need a laugh or two after eating too much, spending way too much time with relatives, shopping until your wallet is empty, cooking for 42 hours straight, etc.
Confession #4": I miss smoking. It's been 1 year since I quit and yes, I feel fabulous in so many ways, but I still miss it.
Confession #5: I feel guilty when I am grateful for Ellie having T1 diabetes. Not for the specific disease, per say, but for the closeness the two of us have. I am also grateful for the community of people we have been pulled into and supported by. Our world has expanded and I wouldn't wish different.
Shoot. I didn't want to count blessings. Now I have gone and ruined the whole post. Crapolina.
Here's another pie chart to make up for it:
