my conversation

I thought that I would share my thoughts from today with you.

I was driving down a familiar route, on my way to Kitchen Designs by Decor (my work). I was sailing along - a few kilometers over the speed limit, with the radio on.

I (as I'm sure you do too) was having a conversation with myself in my head. I don't know how the conversation started (thank goodness I know who started it!), but I found myself saying, "I am thankful that I can do this". What I was thankful for, was that I could drive myself, and I was driving myself to my place of employment.

I'm not one to consciously find myself thankful for things.

So on my way home, a few hours later, I started to think of all the things that I was thankful for. I tried to think of things out of the ordinary - I mean, if I'm going to start thinking this way, my style is usually to be different.

I'm still working on my list.

Thankful for you,

Emily

Beautiful Em. Great. No matter how difficult life gets at times I am always grateful: to be alive and be free and living in Canada and oh so much more......
I am thankful for you.

Cool.

I had a conversation over lunch this week with two good friends at work. The conversation was serious, about how we deal with emotions (or not) - and after we'd talked about the easy ones like anger, fear,and sadness, we turned to the emotion of happiness. One person wasn't sure she'd recognize happiness if it slapped her in the face. The other person (I'm coming to know him as very wise) suggested that we should spend time every day thinking of the things we're grateful for. And in those moments that we're grateful, it's impossible to be angry, scared, or sad - we're just damn happy.

So I'm willing to bet that as you were making your list of things you were thankful for, there was probably a smile tugging at the corners of your mouth. I hope so.

Love,

Annie

I was smiling while I made that list. I also smile when I dance around the house (which is only when I am happy and alone).
