Sitting on the couch the other day brushing Riley's hair. I thought to myself, damn, I am so grateful.
Grateful that I had warm clean water and soap to wash her hair with.
A safe house to have a roof over our head.
A soft couch to be sitting on.
The time I have to spend with her.
I hate that I take all these things for granted on a daily basis.
Thankful for my husband and his secure job.
Our family and friends.
Some days I need a reminder to stop and remember this.That's part of the reason I have been trying to live so simply lately. It's still definitely a work in progress.
