My horoscope said I should blog today. And I must do as my horoscope instructs, so...
Tonight I gave an FHE lesson on Bonnie D. Parkin's talk from LDS General Conference called "Gratitude: A Path to Happiness" Check it out because it really is a wonderful message. In my effort to live my lesson, here are some things I am currently grateful for.
*The Office: "Would I rather be feared or loved? Um... Easy, both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me." ~Michael Scott.
Need I say more?
*LaSawndruh: Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking? There's not. Except for being perched atop lengthy limbs. Bless Sondra and her 6'1" athletic stance.
*Media Mail: Today I sent 6 boxes through USPS and since they were all books, cd's and dvd's I got media mail pricing. I sent approximately 125 pounds of books from Houston, TX to Ann Arbor, MI for just over $50. Nothing short of miraculous in my book.
*Diet Coke: Would life be the same without it?
*Hurricane prevention awareness: I'm glad Hurricane Dean decided to head South. But I'm also grateful for the Hurricane Preparedness 101 I got over the weekend.
*Maps: Kind of a weird obsession, but I really can't wait until I have a study with a massive world map on the wall. For now, the fact that I can use them to plan a driving route suffices.
*MOM: Could I make a gratitude list without including my mother? Here's to the woman who gave me life and is still my lifeline.
*Poetry: Brushed up on some Shakespeare sonnets. Love literature.
*Humidity: It's definitely got it's negative aspects, but for the most part I prefer it to the arid desert.
*Deodorant: The heat/humidity protector.
*Wit: Let's me honest, some people don't have or get it.
And, finally, in tribute to the 2004 classic that I watched this evening, Napoleon Dynamite: GOSH!
Here's until the next horoscope tells me to blog...
