Name Them One by One!

Today is the day, today is a day that should come more often in my life, today is all about counting my blessings. Yesterday's pout was needed but now it's time to kick into gear. I have so much to be grateful for, so all day long I will be focusing on all of that goodness.

I am glad you are happier today. I know what you mean when you need to feel sorry for yourself for a minute. Your list will keep getting bigger and bigger. How about 46. Blogs!
