I’m a very lucky girl. I’m healthy, loved, employed, reasonably intelligent, and can afford to have a silly hobby like style blogging. So I hate it of myself that sometimes it needs to take some major event to make me remember my good fortune instead of being caught up in the sometimes-minutia of the day-to-day.
Like Hurricane Sandy. Like knowing my family and friends in NY have survived unscathed, short of being a little dry in the gas tanks. Especially since so many others were not as lucky, and there may be more coming.
I am not going to list out my blessings, because right now that would take too long. I’ve certainly lost count of them in my head and I for sure don’t have enough fingers and toes to keep track. And that’s OK. But every day should be like Thanksgiving (save for the six hours of cooking, unavoidable family drama, eventual food coma – though isn’t that just part of the fun). My one reminder to myself is that I need to be more thankful. Big or small. Silly or serious. Every day.
So today – I am grateful for my old reliable, my Blackberry. Three years, multiple scratches and a stuck U key later, she and her trackball are still syncing e-mails, receiving phone calls and dinging in text messages.
And you lovely ladies? What are you grateful for today?
