Today I’m choosing to be grateful.
… for the unconditional love of my husband, who works tirelessly, and often without thanks, to provide for our family. He who sacrifices modern day “necessities” like cable tv and a cell phone, so that I can be home.
… for the daily inspiration from my children, all five of the silly miracles. Healthy, beautiful, and ornery. Perfect distractions to the worries of the world. (and great “job security”)
… for the privilege (and the surprise!) of turning both hobby and passion into a part-time income from home, easing the burden of teacher-salary living.
… for the friendship of dear ones who don’t always think like me, believe like me, or vote like me. Friends who stretch me, and pray with me. Who know me and love me anyway.
… for the knowledge that government can’t fix the important things. Not gonna happen. That’s up to you and me. Will we do it?
… for the certain hope that always and everywhere, in every situation, God’s got this!
