Last week at church, a small section of time was taken out to call out good things or blessings that had happened the week before. So, with all the drama going on in my life I am challenging myself to dig deep and find the happy spots. So here goes...
This last week...
-I laughed every day
-talked with my best friend from high school and really laughed loudly
-saved over $150.00 at Macy's
-got to go shopping just for me
-got my daughter to agree to a youth retreat this weekend
-met an extremely kind person in a position of authority who gave me his cell number for times of need
-was given props for doing everything I can to help my child
-had a fellow blogger speak of the hateful annonymous blog stalkers in a blog
-have been given all kinds of support left and right
-my lil' wild man has brought home 3 out of 4 reports on his daily school work.
So, despite the trying times I am living in right now, there is always a yin to that yang. It is so easy to get absorbed in the bad and hard that one can forget the good things happening. I may not jump up and yell out any of this, but I have stopped and reflected and life isn't all bad. It will get better and one can find joy if they look hard enough.
