21 good things

Here's a list of what has been good this week. I figure that with all of the gloom around here, it would be good to keep or write a list of the good stuff that gets me through the challenging parts. I believe these are little gifts from God.

1. Warm socks fresh out of the dryer.
2. Good coffee made by good friends.
3. Spending time at Brewberry's.
4. Realizing that you are getting stronger with the pt exercises.
5. Getting kisses from a guide dog.
6. Walking over to Brewberry's without feeling like it was a bad choice.
7. Good songs on the radio.
8. Feeling and seeing the sun on my face.
9. Banana chocolate chip muffins.
10. Feeling a bit better health wise, even if my ears do feel weird.
11. Realizing that the philosophy paper may not be as hard as I think it is.
12. Laughing with friends.
13. Getting to listen to gospel music.
14. Finding the web site of a magician I saw perform as a kid.
15. Finding interesting books on bookshare.
16. Cuddling with Julio in his bed.
17. Chocolate chip cookies (Enough said).
18. Hearing that my dog is beautiful.
19. Having my dog make the turn for Brewberry's and even find the door.
20. Learning humorous facts I wasn't aware of before.
21. Manageable pain levels.

There are more, I just wanted to find some positive stuff to put up here. What is positive in your week?

thanks for posting these. Sometimes in my life it's really hard to see the good stuff amidst the avalanche of the bad. My first reaction was 21 things? I don't think I could come up with five! I think what I'm going to do is open a window in Notepad and just jot things down while I think of them. And sitting here I've already come up with three; pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, good music to listen to, the laugh of a three-year-old that I really ned to capture on tape one of these days because it won't always be here.

This week has been stressful for me too. Without too many details clogging up your comments page, I'll tell you the worst thing. I have chronic migraines for which I take Axert. Not the best medication, but so much better than Immatrex which made me nautious and generally lethargic for an entire day. Well, I told my music history prof at the beginning of the semester when I gave him my accomidations letter that I might miss class some days due to the fact that the meds make me nautious, but only for a few hours. Then I can go on pain free. This is why I try not to schedule early classes, but it's unavoidable sometimes. Anyway, I missed last Monday. He pulled my reader asside and told him that I needed to make sure to come to class. I was upset, but the issue was eventually resolved. But for a few days I felt really guilty about having migraines, and being on medication, and wished I could just suck it up.

What made this week good was realizing that my friends here are really great, coffee shops, eye opening movies, cooking with blind friends, eating real sushi for the first time and loving it, reading great books...and so on.

Hope you have a fabulous Sunday.
