Lemonade

I spend a lot of my time fantasizing about home ownership. I think about where I want to live, I look up home prices, I talk about it all the time. "When we have a house...." "I can't wait to have..." I've been really trying to appreciate every day for what it is. I enjoy every moment I spend rocking Lucy and trying not to say, "I can't wait till'." I been one of those people who has been looking forward to the "next" thing to be happy. Not that I don't have goals or think it's good to have them, but I'm making a more concerted effort to be happy with what I have and where I am. Yesterday during my Soc class we watched this PBS documentary called, "People Like Us," and there was one woman featured who has really had a difficult time of things. I don't usually take things for granted, but seeing her I realized my apartment really isn't that bad.

I wish I could get that documentary on Netflix, but they don't have it.

It just goes to show when we think our challenges are too much, there are always folks who have worse, more intense challenges than we would ever want. Gratitude for my own personal adversities is in order. Thanks for the reminder!
