Well, life is good...however, I'm feeling a little stressed. Danny has been working late hours, to better our life together and with our children and I'm feeling ran down. I sort of got on a pity pot...feeling sorry for myself...poor pitiful me...everything is falling in my lap, etc. Until, a lady that I work with shared her story with me about how she lost her son. He was 15 and he drowned. She was talking about the things people get so upset about when it comes to their children, and she said, "At least they have their kids". And of course, if you know me, you know I'm so tenderhearted about that sort of thing. I started crying with her. It made me realize how grateful I am that my family is healthy. And yes, being a parent is the most difficult job I've ever had, but, at least I HAVE my kids. I'm blessed beyond measure and I need to learn to be grateful for the good things in my life and not focus so much on the stress. That's how the enemy defeats us all...he wants us to get blinded by all the bad, so that our joy is taken and we find no happiness in life...but, if we focus on the good things, the blessings, the things that make us laugh, the bad stuff just sort of melts away. So, I've decided, I'm not giving into that negativity anymore...I'm gonna be happy with the time I have with my family and be happy that they are alive and healthy, because, some people can't say that.
Count your blessings everyday and praise God for the things he has allowed you to have.
Baby Will has arrived!
