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.
