Thankful on a Thursday
I know we all have days where things are SUCK! and nothing is going right! and my self image is low! and I have too many of those days. Especiallly lately.
I deleted my previous post because I was embarassed.  My insecurites got the best of me and on a whim I logged onto blogger and deleted that sucker. And now? I wish I wouldn't of . Anyway, I was ashamed and shouldn't of been. But I was. Long cuddlefestswith baby, heart to heart with the bestie, a new pair of pants and one KILLA pair of shoes later and I feel much better. :)
Dear LORDY!. I have so much to be thankful for! How ungrateful of me to allow myself to wallow in self pity?
That is NOT the girl I want to be. That is NOT the girl I am.

  1. Cuddles and shoes always solve my problems. ;) The pant, eh, it could go either way! Today I'm thankful for a supportive husband, a mother who's always there for me, and my new job that I start next week!
