Coming back to catch up and I’m so glad I did. This list is great – there are so many lovely things in it, and it’s so easy to overlook how much they help. I’m glad you don’t!
And I’m always happy to have you come catch up. LOL I’m just now catching up, too (as you can tell by this ridiculously late comment).
I’m lacking in the “perfect day” department lately. Definitely helps when you stop and think of all the little things that can add up and make everything seem pretty perfect.
Yeah I’ve totally given up on “perfect day.” What are those?
6,000 words is awesome. Good job. Keep writing.
Thanks girl! It’s coming along!
What a beautiful post. These are the little things in life that make our days worth living. They are right there in front of our eyes. We just have to keep looking!
I couldn’t agree more, Barbie!
I too have to take a seat, breathe, and think about all the positive things going on in my life when I have moments of frustration or start thinking about “how unfair life is”. Also, all it takes is to hear a terrible story in the news and I think how blessed I am to be alive, to have the a husband and son to share this life with, to have a loving family, to have a roof over our heads, bills paid, needs and some wants, and all the other blessings in my life that at times I simply take for granted. I am also such a worry-wart, so it helps to have a husband that keeps me grounded and calms me down with words of encouragement and assurance when I am going into a worry spin. Thanks for sharing…I think all of those have those days that are harder then others, but the good news is we have HOPE and we definitely have things to be thankful for!
I agree. Whenever I read or hear a story on the news about someone losing their husband/wife/child, I hold onto my boys a little tighter and thank God that they are with me and we are all healthy. We live in such a “materialistic” society and it always helps to realize that even if every WANT isn’t met, we have all that we NEED.
