Little Things I Love About Life

1. I love how two of my teachers emailed me at the exact same time down to the minute a few days ago. What a coincidence!

2. I love being in Super Target and cranking up a model radio on a local hit station to hear Adele's pure voice singing "Someone Like You". I instantly appreciated the song and proceeded to half-blast it. Over the course of that shopping trip, I saw eight people stopping, enjoying the music, and even singing along. I'm glad to know that I can brighten people's days.

3. I love social studies. I have the best friends in that class and we share the weirdest moments (Who watches a hen lay an egg? Sicko!)

4. I love waking up to purple light shining into my light blue room and music playing softly.

5. I love making cookies with my two favorite people in the world.

6. I love playing with toddlers and watching their faces light up at things I became disenchanted with years ago.

7. I love when it gets really cold and I get to use like twenty blankets and everything but my head is under the covers.

8. I love it when a song comes onto the radio that I used to love but I sort of forgot about! (Funny how we can still remember the lyrics to songs we last heard a year ago...maybe it's just me).

Shout outs to Annie, Gen, and Taylor. You guys are the best!

Love,
Rachel

  4. I was diagnosed with Arthritis aged 13. I understand the pain and the frustrations. However I admire your extremely positive attitude and approach to life. Wish I'd have had such a strong positive attitude at your age instead of sinking into a depressive mode. Have you been tested for celiac disease? I have read alot about gluten and other food intolerances and allergies and how they can be linked to autoimmune disorders such as Arthritis and Asthma!
