Usually a very grateful girl, I recently found myself saying these things,
"This is horrible, the tides are all wrong today for a long afternoon walk on the beach."
"I didn't sleep well last night because (as I was laying in my toasty warm bed next to my sweetie at the Oregon Coast) the rain was pounding too loudly on my window."
"I only found two unbroken sand dollars today."
"The sun is shining on my computer monitor and if I move, I have to give up my view of the bay."
Then I had a much needed talk with myself which started like this...
"Snap out of it, Miss Nancy, you indeed have a lucky life!"
