I woke up this morning and before I ever got out of bed, I took some time to thank God for yesterday:
- baking cookies with my husband (twenty dozen, all Anzac cookies)
- the cookies turned out better than ever
- a normal conversation with my mom
- a long phone call from my grandson
- finishing up the Christmas decorations
- finishing my on-line shopping
But if you’re like me, all those good things can cause fear.
I know: silly.
But I can really be like “Chicken Little” at times. It goes back to feeling as though I don’t deserve all this. Well, because I don’t. None of us do.
And yet here I am. Feeling mighty blessed.
But then, there was my husband’s annual check-up today. I always hate this day every year until I get a phone call saying everything is fine. (He’s scared me on more than one occasion.)
Not only was everything fine. It was GREAT!
And tonight we are doing something we haven’t done for years. Attending a play. We’re going out for dinner to a restaurant that we to make reservations for. I’ve been planning what I’m going to wear for days. I realize most people don’t dress-up anymore but I’m going to. So there.
Anyway, it’s hard sometimes, isn’t it, to know what to do when we feel so fortunate. I do my best to “pay it forward” but sometimes it seems it’s all very lopsided in my direction.
Anyway, find something or someone to be grateful for today. My days aren’t always like yesterday which you know if you follow this blog. But there is always something to be grateful for.
Gratefulness seems to always attract more good things.
God bless and I hope you have a good day.
