Now that I am back to work...Wednesday...Hump Day once again feels like a milestone in my week. Mid point through the work week and on towards the weekend. YAY.
I had my performance review at work yesterday and it looks like I still have a job *grin*. It's hard to believe that I have been at this job for 10 years now. So much has happened in the past 10 years that looking back on this time is almost overwhelming. Lots of good mixed in with lots of tough times. We made two major moves. Our children all graduated from schools (high school as well as University). The lost of both of my parents and now one of Garry's. Moving up through the ranks at my job, from part-time to full-time. Purchase of our home. Discovering that gardening is actually fun and so far the creepy-crawlers and I have a truce. Our basement flooding twice, on the plus side of that, renovations we didn't have to pay for. Finding Sparkpeople and as a result some wonderful friends. Those are just some of the big ones off the top of my head. There are numerous smaller things, both blessings and learning experiences. Ahhhh, life! Without the learning experiences we would never really appreciate the blessings.
Being so blessed.
The daily opportunities that come my way that allow me to grow and become a better person.
My husband, children, family and friends.
That by cultivating a grateful heart and a positive attitude, I open myself up to even more blessings.
Have a wonderful day, remember that Life is what you make it.
