There are some days where there just isn’t enough coffee to cover the stress, bills, work, kids, home, etc. Some days there just aren’t enough margaritas either.
Something I’ve learned over time, the hard way, is that it doesn’t pay to wallow in all of the things that cause stress and sleeplessness. Rather, it is less stressful if you look for the blessings where others may over look them. Once you find a reason to be grateful, everything else becomes a little more tolerable. I know it sounds very pollyanna-ish, but it works. Here are a few examples of the blessings I dug up today:
1. We are expecting severe thunderstorms today. While it’s definitely the last thing we need, rain sure beats the heck out of snow. I hate shoveling snow. At least when it rains, it just runs down the gutters and away from the sidewalks and driveways.
2. It’s bill paying time again, and I despise paying bills. That I have house and utilities payments means that my kids and I have a place to live, where there is heat, lights and water.
3. My kids eat me out of house and home. They are teenage boys, and if they didn’t eat a lot, there would be something not right. I’m blessed with healthy children.
Well, that’s all for now…I hope that you find as many, and more, blessings in your day.
