There's nothing quite like a visit to the dentist, a spike in the tire, a deal falling apart and a migraine setting in to bring on a good old fashioned cry. But I decided instead to start being grateful, right in the middle of a near meltdown. I am grateful for novocaine. I am grateful for tire repair shops and a husband who doesn't mind rescuing me now and then. I am grateful for the ability to spin many plates. I am grateful for ice packs when my head hurts. You get the idea. Maybe you already do this? My instincts are to do the opposite. But this time, THIS TIME I made myself list things I was thankful for.
By the end of the day, that train had turned around and the snowballs and near tears became one lovely thing after another. Well I'll be darned. And now I am grateful for the ability to be grateful. And for this outrageously quirky video, which tickles my fancy. Who knew there were recorder players with music videos?
