3BT: Random Days

1. Reading a website that reminded me to send a thank you or love card to my hubby.

2. Sending that e-card to my hubby filled with words of gratitude and appreciation.

3. Getting a "thank you", a hug, and a kiss from hubby after he opened the e-card.

4. Watching hubby's naked body in bed at night. Yum yum...

5. Finding a wonderful forum online for infertile people that helped me feel that I wasn't insane with all the turmoil inside me.

6. Reading this beautiful reminder when self-pity kicked in:

We have no right to ask, when sorrow comes, "Why did this happen to me?" unless we ask the same question for every joy that comes our way.
~ Philip S. Bernstein

And all of a sudden the world became A THOUSAND TIMES brighter! :-D :-D :-D

7. Crying out all my pent-up fears, doubts, anxiety, stress to God and feeling good afterward, 'coz I know He understands every single thought and emotion even though I don't need to use words.

8. Excitement 'coz I'm going to call my Mom via Skype today.

9. Hearing this beautiful quote while watching "The Curious Tale of Benjamin Button":

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went
You could swear, curse the fates
But when it comes to the end
You have to let go..."

  2. Oh what a beauuutiful picture!

    I find that being grateful is one of the most empowering ways of thinking.

    I'm grateful that I feel grateful all the time. :)
