“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” ~ Psalms 118:24
Leslie Lynch wrote a beautiful and moving post earlier this month about gratitude. Lately I’ve been dwelling on the stressors in my life, not the blessings, and it’s time to turn that around. The events in Boston and in Texas during the past week have probably made most of us re-evaluate our priorities.
I have a wonderful, supportive family which will grow by one member in less than a month when I gain a daughter-in-law. I have the best group of friends in the world. Seriously, I do. Even with their own busy lives they always make time for me and my crisis of the day.
Even though I an unable to work because of constant neck and back pain we are still able to pay our bills because I have disability insurance, something I never thought I’d need.
My dogs are a constant source of comfort to me. We often take our pets for granted, and they add so much to our lives.
Even though I have significant limitations there are still so many things I can enjoy on a daily basis: a good book, a delicious meal, a funny movie watched with my husband and youngest son.
In short, today I am celebrating my many blessings and thanking God for them!
