count your blessings

I have been the queen of feeling sorry for myself lately.  
We made the decision to have Ryan go to school full time (he's not allowed to work his first year of law school) and I'm staying home with the kids.  So that means no income.  Student loans and our shrinking savings is how we're living.  
So I'm cutting all possible corners and being Mrs. Frugal.  So when I see cute new clothes, or get an idea for a super cute project that I can't buy the materials for, I feel sorry for myself.  
I won't anymore.  (at least for a long time) Read what happened to my sister.

Sorry Tara.

I just read it and my heart sank! It puts everything in perspective though doesn't it. I have been feeling sorry for myself too, it's easy to do that but glad to put things in perspective and be thankfull for all that I am blessed with.

I hope I didn't offend you when drake got hurt. I'm sorry if that was rude, I was totally joking. I hope you're doing ok, and I love and miss you!

That is so aweful. I thought it was bad when my car was stolen. Poor Tara!

Yeah, when I read that yesterday I was getting more and more mad as the list of things in Murrey kept growing and growing!
I can't even begin to imagine how she's going to deal with all of that loss....but, as she said, at least she and her family are safe, and that's the most important thing.
