I feel so empowered today! Still sick but working hard. The last two days were quite possibly the most challenging I’ve had and I am still standing. I can do the things I need to do even when I am sick. The world did not stop revolving and I did not crumble. I cried a little…well…a lot but I am came through it alright. My children are still alive and my husband has not left me AND I have already been up for 2 hours, taken a shower, sewed the “It’s my birthday” button on my 6 year old’s t-shirt. (I need a moment…..6?…..sniff sniff) got the girls dressed, quaffed and off to school. Not to mention, folded a load of laundry and sent a note off to the school principle regarding our box top collection campaign of which I am the coordinator. Now it is time to start my oldest off on his home school day, clean the kitchen and bathroom, do the laundry, make meatballs for dinner and a care bear birthday cake for dessert.
Why do I share all of this? Well, I just feel really good about it. I would like to go back to bed for an hour or so (did I mention I still don’t feel well) but I know that I can’t do that and I am o.k. about that. I really feel good about it, a little proud of myself. I am capable and I am blessed to have it all to do. O.k. so I wallowed a bit in the last few days but I’m over it and I just wanted to acknowledge it, to honor myself and to count my blessings. God is good ALL the time and everyday is an opportunity to see the good. T
