Today was not a particularly special day. In fact, I would consider today to be a very ordinary day.. I got up and headed to work – work was VERY busy. Not only did I have a day packed with obligations from 7:15 until @ 3:30, I then had to head to a board meeting which kept me from home until late at night (as I write this I am waiting to head home, and expect to actually arrive home at 10:30 or even 11:00 tonight- if I am lucky!) Yet, I look at today and I am able to step back and give thanks.
I have often taken the time to step back and allow myself to realize that, even amidst the craziness of life, life is good. Even in the midst of the chaos and busy schedules, I am so thankful to have a loving partner, two bright and loving (most of the time) daughters, and three cats that love me. It is the little things that mean so much – and these little things can help us to keep perspective in the midst of the parts of life that we often run to catch up with. If only we could always (or, at least, often) keep this perspective. Perhaps there would be less depression in this world.
Today, 163 days ’til 40, I am reminded to take the time to stop and count my blessing – there are many. When I take the time to do so, I am blessed
