There are days when you feel really annoyed with life, and things going on it, and feel less than thankful. And I would be a total liar if I said that I just put on a happy face and remember how grateful I should be. No, I mope, and complain, and wallow. And then, eventually, the people around me bring me back up to a feeling of gratitude.
Case in point: Really crappy week last week. Just some drama. I was an unhappy person. Friends called with sympathy and said...let's get ice cream. Time to bring you out of the aforementioned crappy mood. And as it turns out, ice cream solves a lot of problems. Or maybe it's the people who drag you to the ice cream.
And for this, and others like them in my life, I am so grateful and thankful for my friends.
You know what else I am thankful for??
The perfect chair.
Yes, the perfect chair.
I have been trying to 'complete' my family room at home. We had this amazing chair that I absolutely adore in the room. I swear, if fire struck our house I would leave all other possessions in favor of this chair...
However, as hard as I tried, it just didn't fit in our family room. And there was no space in our bedroom. Until I found this baby....
My cow chair should go in the living room, the zig zag chair in the family room. And life will be good. And I will be grateful for chairs. For the perfect chairs.
So I am grateful for friends. And chairs.
