Happy people are grateful 2/28/13

Today I'm grateful that a good friend made it thru her surgery a-ok! (It was minor but it's still a relief).

Happy people are grateful

I read that happy people are grateful.  Suggestions from this article were to journal one thing that you are grateful for each night before bed.  I know that I would never EVER fill out a traditional notebook with these thoughts so I will try it here instead.

Today I am grateful that Jules doesn't have pneumonia. We have to find out what she does have.  But, she was treated for strep and pneumonia a few weeks ago and those 2 items are not the issue now.  The doc called my husband and today's X-Ray was clear!
