An Attempt. Not a Good One, Though.

It's been a while since I update this blog (not that I think anyone cares) and I've been making promises to myself to write again, but have been failing miserably. So I'm going to take a giant step right now and put myself into the "writing mode" again. It's for no one's sake but mine. Though it would feel insanely great if somebody else cares.

So here it goes.

It's been gloomy all day. The sun doesn't shine even just for a bit. It was showering lightly for a couple of hours and automatically I dozed off. One of the best naps I've had in quite a while. I like this kind of weather, where it's gloomy and gray. It could get even better with a heavier rain though. Nonetheless, I'm not protesting. I love being inside my house with the gloominess outside. Better yet, I don't have to go anywhere today.

Hurricane Alex is approaching Texas, they say. It's a tropical storm formed in the Caribbean and it could get ugly. I hope the wind takes Alex elsewhere. Houston doesn't need another hurricane.

Days go too slowly right now. Dragging, even.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow - Melody Beattie

Today I am thankful for:
1. The internet - it makes the distance to "home" so much closer.
2. Rain - I can't imagine days without rains.
3. Health - it lets me live life much more comfortably
4. My dogs - they make me smile. Always.
5. This comfortable bed that I only share with my husband. He's a big guy, but still, it's spacious. 

Good night everyone. Anyone. My in-laws are here with us in our home in Houston for the next three months. I'll keep you posted.
