I don’t know why, but my thoughts today were preoccupied with the “everyday blessings” in my life. I mean, there are MANY worse ways to spend a day, right?! (Actually, I should have said “yesterday” since it’s after midnight!)
My eldest has recently started a new job and she really enjoys it. Granted, there are specific tasks that don’t thrill her but overall, she likes going to work. And she’s made a good enough impression on her bosses that she has been trained to close her department. I’m very impressed by her professionalism on the job. (And she enjoys the job so much, she’s considering getting a marketing degree!)
My second and third born children both got into the colleges of their choice for the fall – number 2 is transferring from the local community college and number 3 just graduated high school. Couldn’t be prouder of the two of them!
My son decided back in December that he wanted to make Acapella choir for next year (his Junior year). He set a goal, focused on the work he needed to do and made it! Again – super proud of his hard work.
In my 40’s I have FINALLY figured out what I want to be when I grow up and a very dear friend has stepped in to help make a very big dream come true. I’m not “there” yet but the first steps have been taken and the forward progress is faster than I expected!
Hubby and I have had the chance to have some AMAZING conversations about matters of faith lately and he was an amazing source of support and encouragement as I was working my way through a rather rough patch.
My family is not perfect. My house is a bit of a mess. I probably have a bad habit or two that I need to break and a good habit or two I should pick up. I’m sure if I looked long and hard enough, I would find some things to get cranky/whiny/unpleasant about. But you know what, I much prefer ending the day with a smile on my face and an overwhelming sense of peace. So I will mull over my “boring” blessings for a few more moments before I turn in for the night.
