feeling kinda blah

This is longer than normal. I've been feeling a little down today. I just needed to take an extra look at what I have. This is what I came up with. Maybe not exactly in this order, and some seem silly, but still very thankful for each.
  • Jesus (not enough words to describe Him. He's Wonderful. Puts up with me. Calms me. Loves me. Awesome. I know He's there.)
  • He speaks to me. Not audible but through His word
  • my husband (hard working, love him)
  • my parents (love them)
  • my sister (love her)
  • my health (ankle is better, no other major issues)
  • my dog (sweet little girl)
  • my in laws (caring, sweet, there when you need them but not there too much)
  • creativity (love to create; sew, scrapbook, crochet, draw, paint, build)
  • my house (shelter from the elements)
  • my car (it gets me where I need to go)
  • my friends (I've had some since kindergarten and still keep in touch)
  • my clothes (they fit and they're clean)
  • warm sunshine (felt good after being cooped up a couple days)
  • good food (love to eat)
  • chocolate (it stands alone)
  • church family (some are closer than blood family)
  • i have a job (some don't)
  • birds singing
  • my craft supplies
  • i can walk, run (maybe not for a few more days, but i will), jump, talk, see, hear, feel
  • God keeps me grounded when I start to get a little flighty
  • His peace
  • His comfort
  • joy in Him
  • good smells; april fresh downy, scented candles that smell like baked goods, black raspberry vanilla from b&b works, most foods while their cooking, flowers
  • my hair (it may not always look the way i want it to, but i have it and it grows fast. some have lost their hair because of cancer or accidents)
  • knowledge
  • my favorite foods; corndogs, chocolate, cookies and milk, grapefruit, biscuits, grilled stuff, baked potatoes
  • I live in America, even though it has a lot of problems, it's still one of the better places to live.

Slow go

It was rough on the treadmill this morning. I had a hard time with the run. I did exactly 3 miles and it took 40 minutes. The pushups felt hard too. I barely did 4. I haven't been sleeping very good and I think thats part of the problem, I'm just tired. I've been in the process of cleaning the basement up and getting my workout area straight. I'll try to show pics when I'm finished. It might take a couple more weeks of off and on work though.
