So today I chose to wake up feeling thankful. I know that I, personally, allow myself to get down from time to time. It always seems that just when I get all of my pieces picked up something comes along to knock them out of my hands and scatter them all over the floor. But I realize that nothing i have ever gone through is even remotely close to the suffering and pain of others out there in the world. It's always true, no matter what you are going through, there is someone out there going through something much more destructive.

So after the last three months of scare after scare, pain after pain, and small battle after battle I've come to realize that everything I went through was ultimately nothing but a small road bump in my everyday perfect little life, and for that I should be grateful. I've got to learn to view my struggles as lessons and listen to what they are trying to tell me- Life is a gift that can be taken in the blink of an eye, so truly live each day as your last, never want for anything and appreciate all that you've got, love unconditionally- even to those that may hurt you, smile a LOT things always feel better if you just smile, try not to take life too seriously, SLOW DOWN you are not superwoman and no one in their right mind expects you to be, pray always- through the bad and through the good, give without judgement, and realize that this life is simply a "lay over" for something much more beautiful!!

So today I chose to wake up and be thankful!!

There's a roof up above me, I've a good place to sleep.
There's food on my table, and shoes on my feet.
You gave me Your love, Lord, and a fine family.
Thank you, Lord, for Your blessings on me.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day Weekend!!
