I feel like I should apologize for another post that is not very profound but the title of this blog is, after all, SIMPLE musings so I’m covered!
I’ve been struck today by the blessings in my life.
I have kids that make me laugh and keep me feeling young. And they flatter their mother by occasionally seeking advice, venting and confiding, or simply giving me a blow by blow run-down of their day. As if that wasn’t enough, I have several “honorary” kids who simply add to the fun!
I get to work with people I not only consider colleagues, but also friends. Do you know how much easier it is for this night owl to get up at 6 a.m. when I know I’m going to see friends at work?!
Of the three part-time jobs I have, two of them are directly related to the performing arts. One of those part-time jobs is with a musical theater production and I’ve donated a significant number of hours to the theater world so getting PAID to work with a show is a serious bonus! As if that one show wasn’t enough of a blessing, I will have TWO MORE paid theater gigs before the end of the school year!
I could EASILY find things to complain about, believe me. But I’m too aware of all the good in my life to feel anything but blessed!
