My life has been stressful lately. So much going on, so much change, and it feels like I’ve been getting NOWHERE. But ya know what? I’m so tired of dwelling on the negative! I’ve reached the end of my long rope, and if I don’t start going back up I’m going to fall off the end. So this post is all about what’s good in my life. I am in need of a blessing count, and now’s the time.
The school year is almost over. Yes, I have been stressed about this but its a GOOD thing. My boys are all 3 doing well and passing their grades. They are in need of a break just as much as me, and I am happy that they get time to unwind and quit worrying about homework for a couple of months. I have some plans for the summer which I am looking forward to carrying out. It will be fun!
We have excellent health! All 5 of us have been sick very seldom over the cold months that just ended. We may have each suffered of a cold twice at most, and besides that we have been very healthy. None of us have any major health concerns whatsoever at this point. That is definitely something to feel thankful for!
We have a running vehicle. We have food in our kitchen and in our bellies. We have clothes on our backs and in the closets. We even have a roof over our heads that includes running water, electricity, central air and heat, and internet. Our basic needs are met. And a few of our wants are met too.
We have EACH OTHER, which is the most important part of it all.
Some of the things I listed are things most of the population takes for granted. But in the journey of my life, many of those things were beyond my reach. I have come a long way to have what I have, and I need to remember to be thankful, always. We don’t have a bad life at all. Its great! Yes, there are stressors, there are still needs that we are reaching for that we can’t quite reach. But I am a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason.” And if we aren’t meant to move to a place we really want, then it must not be a good fit for us. Apparently we are meant to stay where we are for a while. I don’t know why, or what we have left to wait for, but the universe has a plan. Now as long as I keep this blog post in mind, and remember all that I have to be thankful for, I will feel better.
