NO? YES!!!

I can be a very negative person sometimes. And I don't particularly like that character trait. Why does the first word out of my mouth so often turn out to be "No?" So today I decided to engage in an exercise of thankfulness and affection. An uncensored stream of words reflecting delight instead of disappointment. It goes something like this...
I like being able to run.
I like to jump.
I like the sun.
I like my car.
I like my cats.
I like eating.
I like to sleep.
I like breathing.
I like Dean.
I like talking to my cool friends far and near.
I like laughing without knowing why.
I like good stories.
I like learning new things.
I like a whole day in front of me with endless possibilities.
I like pretty skies.
I like loud thunder.
I like being warm.
I like being liked.
I like surprises.
I like to see, hear, touch, smell, and taste my world.
I like me.
I like you.
I like God who thought of something like "liking" in the first place.
