This is just to acknowledge and appreciate all my Spark Friends for your kind words and support. I have to confess that they keep me going. As I posted yesterday things are totally tough. Going on SparkPeople is a relief from my "tight" world and posting this blog is totally liberating. I tell you it is.
I have every cause to be grateful to God for sound mind. I read and responded to a blog posted this morning by someone on SparkPeople. She was busy complaining about how her job was eating into her social life. She had nothing positive to say and this made me realize how blessed I was.
I am a single mother of three with two Masters' degrees and on a Doctoral Program, without a stable job but I have never felt bitter. I work as a Substitute Teacher and I still give glory to God. Things are tough but I remain focused knowing that with hard work and trust in God, good things are coming soon.
I can never be bitter because life itself is a gift; a precious irreplaceable one.
So, in spite of all that I am going through, including a nagging headache that is driving me to bed early, instead of studying, I give thanks to God for all that He is doing. I tell myself every time that if not for His grace, "It could be worse". That is, whatever I might think is the worst possible situation that I am experiencing, it could be worse. Therefore, I am motivated to remain focused in all things and not give up.
If the Lord tarries and I wake to a new tomorrow, I will take it as another beautiful opportunity to move towards my life and healthy living goals.
It is well with us all.
Good night and "see" you tomorrow by His grace.
