Yeah, yeah, I know it’s pretty trite saying isn’t it “Stop and smell the roses?!” But today, that’s what I’m doing. I’m stopping to think about all that’s right about my world. Are there troubles? Of course. Are there frustrations? Duuuuhhhh! But all in all, life is GOOD.
It’s too busy, but a lot of that is my fault and how I choose to prioritize my work. I’m working on that one. Working really hard on that one and making some significant progress. Some times you have to work harder and longer in order to work less — but if you have a plan you can get there.
Why is life good? My family loves me and I adore them. We have FUN together, not just tolerate each other 🙂 We actually get along with each other. We love to play together, whether it’s playing a new board game, watching a movie (if we can stay awake long enough to catch the ending). We like to 4 wheel together, at least those of us with backs strong enough to take the pounding. We’re going camping together next week in one of the most beautiful places on God’s green earth and it’s in our own backyard so to speak. I’ll take some pic with my new DROID phone and see if I can figure out how to post them. Isn’t that the key? LIFE is really about the PEOPLE we share it with.
I’m just writing to remind each of you. Stop and think. What’s GOOD about your life? Who is good in your life? Have you told them that? What’s AMAZING about your life? What are the things that God is teaching you out of the tough times in your life? It’s all a matter of perspective, even tough times can be incredible blessings.
Would you please share with us what’s good in your life and share your blessings in the comments section so that we can remind each other about how wonderful life really is? Remember, there’s one week left in this month’s blog contest. Each comment is an entry into the contest. Feel free to post those comments away. Any day of this month is eligible. You will win your choice of any of my Etsy store $4.95 digital kits. Notice on the right hand side of the blog is a new “Pocket Shop” provided from the wonderful website “Craftcult.” Thanks to them for making ways for those of us who hand craft to get the word out about what we do.
LIFE IS GOOD! Take time to remind yourself. Like the picture below says “RELAX!” Have a cup of tea with someone you love. Enjoy the sunset. Pamper yourself or someone you love. Enjoy life…by
