having gratitude when life sucks

Life has dealt us some bad blows in the past week. My hubby C totaled our car in the pouring rain on Saturday morning. He wasn't hurt, so we were lucky. Then I lost my job yesterday. I really don't care because I hated it, but it is a financial challenge.

It is hard to continue to live in the present moment and feel grateful when it seems as though the walls are crumbling in around you. I guess that is my challenge for the coming weeks.

The really ironic thing about all this is that we'll get a pretty nice amount of money from the settlement with our insurance company regarding our totaled car. This leaves us with much better options than we would have if I'd lost my job and the car hadn't been wrecked. Life can be so strange sometimes.

To add insult to injury, I had one of the most horrible migraines I've had in a while last night and today. I couldn't stop throwing up. I was miserable, but I'm feeling better all the time.
