I have tried hard today to have a positive attitude, I still didn't get much sleep last night but the drugs were at least out of my system. I was grateful for that, and tried to appreciate all the things that I do have a reason to give a thumbs up for today like...
I was able to drive!
I was able to go to my Physical Therapy appointment!
I was able to spend some time with my granddaughters!
I was able to do some reading!
I was able to go walking tonight!
I actually wanted to create something today, haven't felt like that in a while!
So I am grateful, I realize that I have lots to complain about, but that has never gotten me anywhere so...I am trying hard to remember these days PROBABLY won't last forever, and look forward to better and stronger days, with less pain and more sleep! Thanks for your calls, emails and prayers, they are something that also keep me going!

ALWAYS MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Many years ago, a large American shoe manufacturer sent two sales reps out to different parts of the Australian outback to see if they could drum up some business among the aborigines. Some time later, the company received telegrams from both agents. The first one said, "No business here...natives don't wear shoes." The second one said, "Great opportunity here...natives don't wear shoes!"
