As a spoiled America youngest-child, I've often felt that if something doesn't immediately go my way, that the entire universe is conspiring against me to make me upset. The world is literally going to stop spinning on its axis because I paid too much for something or because my husband got deported. Life is hard. And it sucks sometimes.
But only sometimes.
There is good in my life- A LOT of good. And I need to remind myself of that constantly. It could be a lot worse. I am so blessed beyond measure. So to celebrate this revelation I had at the grocery-store check-out, I'm listing 5 things that make my life a good life:
3-Brushing the tangles out of Cecilia's hair. I should be very grateful that my daughter is healthy, and has hair for me to brush. A lot of mom's are not so lucky.
4-I have a job to wake up and go to. A lot of people also, are not so lucky. I complain a lot about my job, but I am grateful for it, because the wages that it pays me are going to get me closer to my family being together.
5-Harry Potter. I'm a huge Potterhead. I have a Harry Potter tattoo. I love these books. They inspire bravery in me.
