Suck it up

I've noticed a negative tone to my posts lately. There is a good reason for that-there is a negative tone to my life lately. I could list the reasons I feel sad, or unloved or unappreciated or frustrated or...well, you get the idea. But I am not going to do that. I am going to pull myself up by my bootstraps and focus on the good things in my life and let go of the negative feelings. There are a lot of wonderful "things" about my life.
*I am married to the love of my life and after 22 years together (17.5 married) he still makes my heart flutter when he walks into a room. Yes we have our moments like every couple does but I can honestly say that I not only love him, but I like him as well.
*I am the mother of an amazing little boy. Three years of tears, prayers and fertility specialists have resulted in the cutest, smartest, sweetest little boy I have ever seen. Yes, I am totally biased.
*My husband shares my committment to being a full-time mom. Things are tight financially but we will never get this time back and I count myself so lucky to spend so much time with my son.
*My husband has weekends off. Our family time is so precious and we love being together.
*We own our house. It's a small house but it's ours. We have a plaque in our living room that reads "Our house is just a little house, but God knows where we live." Enough said.
I could go on and on but that's enough for now. R is on his way home, J is napping and when he gets up we are going to start our weekend! Life is good. Sometimes I just need a reminder of how good it really is. Have a great weekend!

Sometimes you just just got to have an outlet and the blog can be it. It's good just to get it out.
