What a beautiful morning! That in itself is enough to be thankful for. But today I’m thankful for something else.
I’m thankful for a long-overdue coffee & catch up at a play center yesterday with a gorgeous woman/mum/friend . I love that our kids are old enough now that we can sit and keep an eye on them without having to follow them around. I love (and hate) that 2 hours flies by like it’s been 5 minutes.
I’m thankful for the possibility of opportunities. We don’t really know what the opportunities are exactly just yet, but hopefully we’ll know more soon. Sometimes you have to be brave enough to put yourself out there, take that first step, make a change. Sometimes that’s all it takes for someone else to recognize your efforts, your capability, your value. That’s what happened for my husband. Now, a path we thought we might go down is narrowing, because a path we thought was coming to an end, is looking like it’s not an end, but a great big clearing to a bigger and better path.
Seriously, am I being cryptic enough for you? I don’t mean to be, I’m just cautious of jinxing anything. It’s just nice to see my husband get recognition for his hard work. He’s never late, hates taking sick days, even when the Dr thought he might have had swine flu and he could barely walk he wasn’t keen about taking time off (even though he was bed ridden for a week), he is great at what he does and knows what he’s talking about. And finally it looks like paying off.
And things aren’t so bad at my work. There are plenty of hours for me, when it looked a few weeks ago like they’d be cut back.
It’s funny how things always work out. It’s a lesson I’ve learned over and over, and while I do know it, and do believe it, I still get caught up in the worrying? Why?
I am getting better. My shoulders are lighter, mind is clearer, there’s so much good in our lives. I’m thankful for the clarity to see the GOOD things, and there are so many of them.
What are you thankful for? Play along with Kate & the other lovely bloggers.
