And I could stay there, I could dwell on it and make myself more miserable. If I did I could probably come up with a longer list of grievances too. Instead, I am making a choice to focus on the blessings in my life and not just the general ones (for which I am thankful) but specifically, the things that happened throughout the day today, that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy, I'll think about these things (Phil 4:8).
Today, I got window kisses from two beautiful and healthy children, a 2 minute visit with a friend, a wonderful conversation with my Grandma and my sister Amanda. I look forward to the birth of my niece or nephew (although I do think it is a girl). I can't wait for the next 5 days and some time with Andrew. I am thankful for the life Jesus gave me, and the calling he has for myself and my family. The joy in knowing I am where he wants me to be, doing what he wants me to do.
