Cowgirl Hotlist

Dear Cowgirl, The power wouldn’t turn on this morning. which meant no coffee. The truck is dirty and beginning to break down again. AGAIN. I spilled blueberry smoothie down my white button down, which is what I get for trying to eat healthy while on the go. My sister is ill, and i’m terrified every minute about losing my best friend. I have ten million things going WRONG this morning. But you know what is going right? Everything. I didn’t wake up to someone bombing my home this morning. I slept in a bed, not under a bridge. I made myself healthy, safe food that I was able to buy. I was feeling grumpy as I worried about my vehicle I own. I was irritated by the stains on my clothing as I grabbed another shirt choice, hanging neatly ironed in my closet. I stop halfway out the door for the second time that day. I look at the blessings I’ve been given, and give a silent prayer for the things that have been gifted but cannot be seen. I am thankful. I am joyful. I am alive.
