it's not even winter yet

so why do I not feel so good already?
I don't want to turn this into a self-pitying complaint, but I do want to say that it has been a struggle the last few days to get anything accomplished without a lot of real effort. I realize that I have it really good compared to the rest of the world right now, and I am going to try to keep saying Thank You to God for all the good stuff with which I have been blessed.
Let me count a few of the ways - in no particular order.
A husband who truly loves me, enough that at 10 PM he will make a fast food run because I'm too tired to cook (after we get home from an event).
Winning tickets to a concert by just happening to be caller #5 with the answer to the trivia question. (What band was Richard Thompson in just before he went solo) And - having a husband just crazy enough that he was willing to drive to Somerville on a Monday night to hear Richard Thompson perform.
Some truly wonderful priests who are faithful and loving and brave enough to call us all to responsibility.
A great co-teacher for my group of kids in confirmation one.
A great bunch of kids in our small group.
A lifework that I truly love, despite my issues with some of the conditions of employment.
Six wonderful children.
My cursillo community, my blog friends, my email list friends, and the theology of the body class I've been attending.
A roof over my head, food on the table, and the Eucharist readily available.
What more could I ask for in terms of material wealth?
