Spontaneous Gratitude for a Frustrating Day

Lately I have been dealing with some pretty serious neck problems. I think that packing the car for camping by myself was not the best idea. I know it had to get done, but after being in my morning sickness cloud for the last 2 months, I really wasn't up to cleaning and packing a van for a big trip all on my own. The next morning I woke with a horrible pain in my neck and it has waxed and waned for the last week.

I am frustrated.

It is hard enough being under the weather for a worthy reason like making a baby, but to be under the weather for something stupid you did is just so irritating!

My chores are now limited to anything I can do without lifting anything over 10#. I hope that is let up soon, but I tried when I started to feel better, and I was back in bed again all day today. :( So back to the limits it is. And it really has me down.

I decided that today was a Spontaneous Gratitude type of day.

Today I am grateful for:

A tiny Sungold tomato that I was able to pick (along with 4 others) for my snack today. And being able to eat them.

Beautiful sunflowers that have taken over my garden, and the bees they bring with them.

The fenceline next to my house with the hundreds of almost ready blackberries, just waiting to be turned into cobbler and jam.

My cat, sleeping in the bird bath.

These sweet wind chimes on my front poarch that sing to me all day long right now.

And the bounty that became deep fried squash for dinner.

Self inflicted injuries can be so frustrasting. Hope you feel better soon. It's always nice to look at nature to make us feel better.
