Sundays are hard for me. I used to spend them with Mother and so the emptiness is more intense than on other days. And then there are old memories of other parts of my life that seep into Sunday as well, making the day just plain tough.
That's why I decided to use Sundays for listing gratitude. When I'm feeling my darkest, it makes me look toward the light.
1. Blue nail polish. I've always liked nail polish and for some reason blue polish just tickles me.
2. Half and half. Yeah, so it's hard on the arteries and skim milk or soy milk is so much better for you. But in a cup of coffee, real half and half can't be beat.
3. My son. I got to talk with him yesterday and that always brightens the greyest of days.
4. The public library. I love being able to browse for books that I might not have ever thought about reading, either electronically or physically.
5. Wifi. Of all the recent inventions, wifi has got to be one of my favorites. Sitting anywhere in the house and being able to access the internet and email is magical.
