I'm feeling really blessed lately. So many around me are struggling - marital problems, unmarried and unplanned pregnancy, death of a child, car problems. Right now we are just drowning in blessings.
No, life isn't perfect. I'm not a stay-at-home mom. My marriage isn't perfect. I haven't had time to garden and my yard is filled with weeds. The cat wakes me up yowling in the middle of the night.
But we are financially secure. More so than ever before. We have a wonderful home. We have friends and family, even if they aren't all close by. My husband compliments my cooking. We have plenty of food and I know how to prepare it. We know God loves us and will continue to bless us.
I hope that you, too, will recognize your blessings and dig a little harder for them if you don't immediately see them. Be a Pollyanna. Play the "glad" game.
