Sometimes I'm one sulky bitch. Just ask Christine and she'll tell you (sorry, Bean). However, just as all light is lost, there is usually some kind of miracle, and I am gradually able to remember the remarkable list of things for which I am thankful. These include the following:

  • the sandstone swimming holes in the Teanaway River
  • Maya's ringlets
  • hiking boots that don't give me blisters
  • Jazzercise
  • romantic hotel nights with Scotty
  • Jordan's full-contact body hugs
  • stitch and bitch
  • my awesome, awesome friends
  • enough money
  • the new La-Z-Boy
  • really big ceramic coffee cups
  • sugar-free ice cream
  • daisies
  • my cool job
  • wireless internet on my laptop
  • herbal tea
  • AA women's meetings
  • backpack trips
  • Sunday drives into the mountains
  • therapy
  • candles
  • remixed world music
  • my new needlepoint project
  • massage and energy work
  • new Elmo tapes from the library
  • Ringer Loop in the fall
  • our travel van

So next time I'm bitchy, maybe I'll remember this list. Maybe not. Today it makes me feel pretty damned sunshiny, and that's good enough for me.
