Resolution Schmesolution (Now that's a mouthful!)

Make a resolution? Last year my new year's resolution was to actually keep a resolution. Wanna guess how well that went? This year I don't want to focus on change. I simply want to focus on what is already good. Here are a few - and I do mean few - of the things I was truly grateful to have this year:

*friends
*family
*laughter
*reasons to laugh at myself
*fingernail polish
*stain remover
*ampersands
*bubble gum machine rings
*forgiveness
*dancing in the rain
*candles that make me go yum
*flip flops
*hiking trails
*flannel sheets
*lillies
*books, books, and books
*taking chances
*mafia wars
*"my" soldiers
*midnight chats
*claritin!!!
*arm warmers
*girls' nights out
*communion
*no more meat cleavers in my house
*stitches
*vitamin e
*competent doctors
*compassionate pastors (okay, one)
*best friends
*powerful words
*monsters that make me laugh (and sigh and cry)
*aching muscles
*Bella
*text messaging
*8G SD cards
*the delete button
*flat irons
*vanilla
*beer bong tournaments
*camp fires
*Tanner's first fish and Braeden's first concert
*prayer
*the peace that comes from prayer
*relief that can only come from a rightly timed F word
*favorite restaurants
*favorite authors
*art
