So Much to Be Thankful For

I am done feeling sorry for myself. Even though I may not understand it right now, everything happens for a reason; even this car wreck.

I took this picture of Sophie yesterday morning before I dropped her off at my friends house. This picture is a reminder of all I have to be thankful for. So tonight this is what I am thankful for:

*I am thankful that Sophie was not with me when I had the accident.

*Part of the reason I was hit was because I was turning left into a Burger King because I had to use the bathroom. I am thankful that I did not pee my pants when the wreck happened. :)

*I am thankful that S was just 30 minutes away from the wreck. I am also thankful that I got to spend the afternoon, evening and night with her and allow her to just love and hold me. Her love is the best cure for anything bad.

*I am thankful that I was not seriously hurt. I am sore, but thankful that I wasn't driving faster then my very busy guardian angels.

*I am thankful that my call with Laura went OK.

*I am thankful for all my friends who have called me, helped me get home, and just told me they love me and are there for me.

*I am thankful for Craigslist because I have made some extra money tonight by selling some things. (anyone want to buy an iPod??)

Life is still very good and I have so much to be thankful for. And yes, I have been through things a lot worse in the last year....I can handle this.

Good job of reframing everything. You will be sore for a couple of days, I was and I wasn't hit as hard as you. Hang in there, remember you are stronger than you give yourself credit for.

Isn't Craig.slist fabulous?! All will be well you know. It does suck getting there sometimes though, doesn't it? Peace.

Chin up! Really that is all you can do. Move forward. You've already crossed some impressive hurdles (Laura - ack!)
