Here's the journaling:
I've really had a hard time this month.
1)I got a speeding ticket.
2)My grandmother died.
3)I lost my wallet in the airport.
4)I owe the dentist $400.
5)Taxes are due.
6)Had to buy a year's worth of oil and it turned out to be at one of the highest prices right before the oil prices dropped.
7)Someone ran into my MINI and scratched and dented the side.
It seemed like every time I turned around I was having to shell out more money. But flying home from my grandmother's funeral and thinking it all over, I realized that I felt lucky. Lucky that I have a loving, healthy family and I am so proud of all of them. Lucky that my husband has a good job and we live in a beautiful house. Lucky that I get to spend so much time doing the things that I really love to do like scrapbooking and spending time with friends. When you add it all up, even though bad things happen from time to time, I'm really a very lucky girl.
