|How YOU Doin?|
So I stopped by one of my fav stores, Dollar Tree, to pick up a couple of things and as soon as I step in the door I get attacked by what I thought was a huge horsefly. It just rammed into me right behind my left ear. Well of course I started swatting away like crazy. What's so funny is I had on these huge earrings that Quida gave me, so I'm playing tetherball with the earrings trying to get this 'fly' off of me.

But this isn't the first time I had an encounter with the stinging kind. A couple of months ago as I finished using the toilet and turned to flush, I discoved a baby yellow jacket was sitting right behind me on the toilet lid the whole time. I'm talking inches. It's 'little' things like this I put in my gratitude basket.
I get a little piece of paper, write a short blurb about the event, date it, fold it, then throw it in the basket. Every now and then, especially when I'm feeling down, I dig around in the basket and read whatever I pull out first. It's amazing how quickly they add up. No matter where we are in life we should always practice an #ATTITUDEOFGRATITUDE because
The LORD is good.
