i had a frustrating doctors appointment a couple weeks ago (everything is fine health wise, just waited for 2 hours and was annoyed and feeling sorry for myself) so at the end of the day I just needed a good cry in the shower. But the tears wouldn't come, I just kept thinking about how blessed I am!
