I get....

I know this little family who has started a blog. They are trying to turn their hard times into better times for others and always look on the bright side. Recently, the father in this family wrote a post that's been on my mind a lot lately, about not what struggles we have, but about what we GET to do.

Although I generally think things will work out and be ok, I have a hard time looking at the positive. But here they are--many of my frustrations at this time turned into what I GET to have in my life.

  • I get to hear my grandmother's voice light up as she talks on the phone to my 3 year old.
  • I get more outside time than I would otherwise
  • I get extra snuggle time at 1, 4, and 7am
  • I get a husband who not only brings extra money into the house, but also gets to do activities he loves to do
  • I get to jump on the bed
  • I get the luxury of having the internet in my home
  • I get "friends and family that I respect, when I think I'm too good, they put me in check"
Thank you to the M Family for helping me to look on the bright side!

This is really nice! I really try to remind myself everyday about what "I get" to do. It's catchy and it works. A little positivity goes a long way!

Thanks for writing about it and passing it on!
