You can all consider this therapy. One problem with blogging is that everyone generally only gets to see the bright sunny exterior. Anyone who really knows me in real life knows that I'm not at all a bright sunny person. I've always been a little on the negative side. That is certainly not the way I like to be, but I've always had trouble finding the silver lining. So, in an effort to help my own mental state a little, I'm forcing myself to find things in my life that I can be grateful for, both big and little. Hopefully, I'll do a post each week on some of these things. With any luck, I can make an impact on my outlook.
So today, I'm going to start out with a few of the more immediate things.
2. Cooper and Freckles
Deven and I never plan on having children (which is really a topic for another day), so our pets are our children. I have had Freckles for years. I picked her out the day she was born and knew I had to have her. She's chubby and a huge brat, but I love her to pieces.
Deven and I adopted Cooper together. He's completely irresistible. He will maul you trying to get attention when you come through the door, but after he calms down he just wants to snuggle and be petted. He's the most sensitive dog I've ever known, if a TV show or movie makes me cry he always has to come stick his nose in my face and check on me.
I couldn't ask for better children. :)
