The Glad Game

My, oh my...has it really been more than a year since I've posted? Why, yes. Yes, it has. It's been quite a year for my family, health-wise. But, we are all so much better and I'm able to focus once again on some of the things that I love to do for myself and others, like taking pictures and making things.

This morning, I was walking my kids to school and had a bit of a discussion with my daughter regarding her negative attitude. I suggested that she play The Glad Game, a-la Pollyanna. She grudgingly agreed to give it a go. While I was walking home I realized that I should, perhaps, take my own advice. I need a bit of an attitude adjustment myself.

As luck would have it, I had an opportunity to play the game not long after I returned home. I put on a kettle of water to boil for some tea and promptly forgot that I did so. I returned to the kitchen about 45 minutes later to a boiled-dry, enamel finish-ruined, red tea kettle.

So, I ruined my Christmas present from my husband, but I'm glad I didn't burn the house down. A roof over one's head is always a good thing. :-)

Want to play? What are you glad about today?

  1. I filled up my car with gas today, and it cost over $46! I'm not happy about the price of gas, but I'm glad I have a job that allows me to pay for the gas, and I'm glad I have a car to fill with gas. : )
