I was having a bit of rough day today. I usually try to stay positive but every now and then I give in and have a "moment". It's the holidays and were having to look for a new place and that in itself is exhausting. Deposits, applications, fees, neighborhoods and the hassle of packing and moving and getting help to move it. Were not moving far from where we currently live, just need to move.

I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, so I know everything is gonna be ok, I just have to stay strong. In times like these, I usually reach out to friends and family for advice or just positive thoughts. My grandfather and I spoke a few days ago, and he told me "When ever you are feeling down, just remember all the things you have to be thankful for"

Those words pop up in my head everytime I get a lil down. And he's right. I usually tell people this myself, but when it comes to myself, I tend to need a lil reminding. I am thankful. I've had my fair share of crappy situations, especially around the holidays. I have alot to be thankful for. My family, children and friends are all healthy for the most part, I have a roof over my head, a car to drive, a job and I can go on and on. I have to remember to be thankful. I'm not just saying these things because Thanksgiving is around the corner, but I think it's good to be reminded what we have to be thankful for.

I havent been blogging the past few months, and many of my readers are wondering why. Things are just crazy. Im hoping after the holidays, it will calm down and I can get back into my routine blogging schedule. But for now, thank you for reading and visiting- especially those who read it all the time or who have been with me for a while. I appreciate that you take the time to read what I write. See you soon in the next post!
