The other day I was driving to work and just thinking about all the things that needed to happen that day and then about everything that needed to get done the next day, and so forth. Usually driving is when I get teary most of the time, you know when a song comes on the radio, or I pass a certain landmark and the flood of emotions come and it just gets the best of me. Yesterday I did get teary too but not for what usually brings those tears. Somewhere in the midst of all the "to do" items I was thinking about, I realized just how happy and content I was. I thought wow, I am one blessed lady! I have a great marriage, I have great kids, I have a job that I love that allows me to be a full time Mom at home, I have great students that love to learn, we are still financially stable even with all those medical bills to pay off, I get to serve my friends, neighbors, and some super cute kiddos at church. Wow, life is really good! I realized although I still have lots of crazy going on with places to be and things to do, and stress here there and everywhere, amongst all of that I am still amazingly blessed and am really happy. Which of course brought tears of gratitude for those wonderful blessings, (nuts how those pesky waterworks get in the way sometimes!). With all that has happened over the course of these last few years the Lord has continued to bless us and wants us to be happy. Trials come and go, some of those trails are overwhelming and last longer than we want them to, yet life still continues on and I am seeing the sunshine, the joy, and overall beauty this life has to offer. Life is good!
