The only thing I know to do in times of despair is to count and seek out my blessings. Amongst the hurt and pain and anguish, I beg of you to find something you are grateful for today and why you are grateful for it. Share if you wish to spread more love.
  1. Music. I'm so grateful for words to a melody because it lifts me up and is like a hug to my soul. It makes me smile.
    This week's tunes are Alicia Keys.
  2. My friends.
    I have friends online, and friends from high school and college. They've been getting me through today.

  3. Today was the most beautiful day.
    If it had matched my insides I don't know how I would have survived.

  4. Family
    Being able to call my parents just because. Text my sisters when I feel like it. Seeing both my grandmas in this week, one who I haven't seen in years. Also my roommates, who are my family away from family. :)

  5. My friends and family.

  6. Comedians and all nice celebrities
    I have found them to be a great comfort now and always. I've found so many like minded people that I admire and they push me to work hard and get to a place where I can be around people like them.

  7. The opportunity to see another sun rise, to be with my K and children, to play music and read lists and walk the dogs in sunshine. (The view 40 minutes ago ⬆️)
    Also, the chance to talk with people living in the future!

  10. I get to see my sweet baby brother in 3 days!
    Booked a flight out west today so I can meet up with my parents to take my 8-year-old brother to Disney for the first time. I can't wait to hug him!
