Have an A++ Day today!

Walking into work this morning I was asked the typical How are you? to which I responded. A++ This startled the people around me.  A++ That's extremely happy :) Some reminisced the last time they had that great of a day. 

Why isn’t everydayA++? 

I totally understand that there are days with illness and death that cause us to mourn, but I feel like most of our bad days really aren’t that bad. 

Top 5 reasons my day is A++

#1 I have an adorable healthy son! - Sure he kept me up a good portion of the night, but I wished and prayed for a son for a long time... I finally have him!

#2 I have a wonderful job where I am successful and appreciated - Sure I could be sleeping in or barefoot and pregnant living on a 30 acre farm - but my job is HUGE blessing in our life!

I love dreaming about farm land!

#3 My son is crawling now! Just before 6 months! Yes, I could see this as a negative because I now have to redo my entire house to be baby proof... But I am loving it! Being a mom is truly glorious!

#4 I had an email waiting in my inbox when I arrived from my husband telling me how much he loved me. We try to begin each work day with a short note of love from each other. 

#5 I have manure for planting my garden. Sure, my car really smells, as does our neighborhood now :) But I am well on my way to growing perfect tomatoes!

We have so much in life to be grateful for! I have to remind myself everyday to stop and appreciate all the blessings that I have.  

What are the things that make today an A++ day for you?


  1. What a fun blog you have! Thanks so much for the follow! I followed you back via bloglovin!! Thanks so much for linking up at our Weekend Wonders party!

  2. you're so right, we should definately look at the positives in life more, and when you do, you realise the positives outweigh the negatives! Will start thinking of my A++ reasons from today!


I would love to hear from you!
