Today was a tad more difficult for me, as I gained a new client and had to work longer. It will take me some time to adjust to the new client, her needs and expectations, her routines . . . etc. So I was pretty worn out by the end of the day, and then I had some very cranky kids to deal with for a couple of hours, which left me feeling even more exhausted and, with it, a touch discouraged. I needed a lift.
So I’m grateful for the choir performance tonight. My daughter did exceptionally well, and the choir was pretty fantastic overall. The whole performance left me feeling a little better all on it’s own. I appreciate Becca’s new teacher, she’s very talented and enthusiastic, and it shows in the way the kids perform.
I am also grateful for my kids’ bonus mom. She’s pretty amazing. I wish we were sisters in the literal sense of the word. We have a lot in common, and I feel very comfortable around her. You wouldn’t think so, seeing as how she married my ex and all, but really, being around her is as easy as anything, and I enjoy her company and her conversation. We had a few minutes of chit-chat after the performance tonight, and it made me laugh and I felt better about the day.
It’s amazing to think how the Lord has blessed me in ways you would not imagine. Like my kids’ bonus mom being amazing. And my kids being blessed with talents that make my heart swell with pride.
There are many ways I have been blessed. My power was reconnected in record time. My car continues to get me to and from work. The washer and dryer are still working. I have a nice clean closet. And a clean vanity sink. And my fabric stash is well on it’s way to being organized. And I have good friends who help care for my children after school, during extracurricular activities like scouts, and more. And there are scriptures on the internet, that I can listen to when I need a boost but don’t want to read. And there is free music online, and free videos. And tutorials for sewing and quilting and crafting. And so many other wonderful things.
I could make a list a mile long and still have more to add.
I’ve been blessed. There is so much to be grateful for. And I’m happiest when I remember that.
