Gratitude - My Favorite Tool

Wow I haven't felt this bad since I was detoxing from those damn SSRI's... all due to my daughter's announcement that she is thinking of moving out soon.  I certainly understand her need for independence, but have terrible issues with the fact that we gave her part of our acreage on which to build a house, and she is going to move to town to rent one.  I know that I am going to miss my granddaughter, Anah, terribly and am just downright depressed at this moment.

Thus, I am going to use gratitude, my greatest tool,  to move on and feel better..

I am grateful for the morning sun and the cowbird that comes pecking at my window.
I am grateful for this beautiful place that I call home.
I am grateful for cool temperatures so that I can work outside.
I am grateful for my abiity to "get it together" and get on with life.
I am grateful for not beating myself up because I am upset.
I am grateful for all the beautiful flowers and great veggies growing in my gardens.
I love my cat!
I appreciate my new red shirt and look great in it.

There, now I feel better and can move on with my day and get outside before it gets too hot to pull weeds.

It has helped me get through some tough moments for sure... and as is her way, the daughter has now decided to stay for a while again. I think I could deal with her moving out as she won't go far, but it is this back and forth stuff that drives me fking nutz.. oh I was nutz before that LOL

it must be something that daughters do! mine says she will come back up here, mayber stay, maybe visit, she loaded the car, then changes her mind. i hear ya about driving you fking nuts. i give up. i just want her to be happy. my one consolation is that her little girl resides with us, so our hearts are releived and we enjoy her so much.
i am just happy you will have Anah near now.
(may i ask how you pronouce Anah? such a pretty name, either way)

I have four daughters.. must be why I am really nutty LOL...I've been trying to figure out how to properly write down the pronunciation.. so here goes.. the first syllable is like ah.. the sound you make when the doctor looks down your throat LOL.. and the second a sounds the same.. like the a in father or calm.. not sure what they call that..
