I'm Feeling Lucky!

Well, the month of February is over. And so is my month of love.
And I will miss it. 

My sister-in-law Angie said it's like reading my gratitude journal, and in some ways it has become my gratitude journal. It kind of took on a life of it's own. I have had so much fun sitting down every day and thinking about the things I love. When you do that, it makes the things you DON'T love seem a bit more bearable. So, thank you for sharing my month of love with me.

I'm not quite sure what to do with this blog thingy now!
I will still have to do days of love every once in a while.

I was talking to Charity today and we were talking about the blog. As I explained my new dilemma to her, she said, "Well, March is the LUCKY month. Write about the ways you are lucky." 

I don't think I'll do a whole lucky month, but maybe a few.
She got me thinking. I really am a lucky girl.

I'm lucky that my gray hairs have not completely out-numbered 
my horse-poop-icky-colored-brown hair.
I'm lucky to have a great hair stylist who is really good with bleach.
Now, if I can just hold on for one more week.

I'm lucky that although the tv is going out, 
and everything is turning blue, 
I still can see the picture and the sound is GREAT!

I'm lucky that although my body is getting older,
it still functions and gets me where I need to go.

I'm lucky that even though Luke blew slimy green boogies all over me today, I had a bottle of antibacterial goo close by.
I'm also lucky that I have LOTS of medicine in my cupboard to battle those green boogies.
I'm lucky that only 6 of us have been hit with this yucky stuff. 
That means we still have some healthy ones!

I'm lucky that 4 out of 11 of our birthdays are this month.
My bank account never really feels
very lucky this month, but I sure do!

Plus, Luke just pulled a quarter out of my ear,
so I REALLY must be lucky!

It's all about perspective!

This month, I'm going to have some fun. 
I've got some fun ideas to share.
I'll also be introducing more of these amazing kids of ours.

So, let the month of March begin!
It will be a crazy month in the Blaylock home, but a very happy one.
Maybe.....even a lucky one.
