3 gifts falling:
Well that's a tough one. I'm sure I'm supposed to say leaves or something. But how about these instead:
1. My guard. Truth be told, I have been too scared for too long. Worried about everything, just so anxiety-ridden. Scared about how I come across to others who just don't know that I'm shy, scared that I sound ridiculous to everyone I talk to because I'm nervous and say the wrong things, scared of the -ex, scared that my home will never be organized enough for sleepovers, just stupid and senseless things. Either these things will be or they won't. It's good to be aware, but stressing over it is a waste of time and energy. So I am thankful that I am starting to be able to get away from that constant fear and nervousness and that I am able to enjoy each day completely.
2. The price of gas. Hallelujah! I heard the price of gas is supposed to drop below $3/gallon for most of the country. I haven't heard such awesome news in a long time. With the prices of everything else going up, like food and household goods, it's nice to know that I will have the gas to get to the store and still have a budget when I get there.
3. Humidity. Thank God for that. Falling humidity comes with falling temperatures. THAT, I'm not so thrilled about. But as I sit here typing this, an incredibly wonderful family friend has come by to drop off some sweaters for me. I have had such a lack of sweaters my entire adult life. I have coats, but not a whole lot that I can really wear inside while I am at the computer or in bed. I am so grateful for her visit, she has been such a blessing over the years. I can't wait to enjoy the warmth this year.
I suppose if I have to deal with falling temperatures, then the falling leaves are also nice. So I will throw that in here because I know that I'm supposed to.
Okay, enough procrastinating, on to clean the kitchen and do some laundry.
Enjoy your Thursday!
