I am blessed.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I am very blessed.

Today I took a day off from the world. It did not start as good be truthful yesterday didn't end so well. But this morning when I was printing out some paperwork for a job application, the printer ran out of ink. I didn't have enough oatmeal for was what I really wanted for breakfast. It really bugged reason..I just wanted to eat it before I went to the store. I was feeling bad anyway cause I had to listen to a friend talk about the things she bought for a kindle, some shoes, things that really didn't matter. She and her family were going to a movie tonight. She was so excited, and I am happy for her. But I was feeling bad for me. I don't have a job, I am having a hard time learning new computer programs that are making me feel like I am not employable, I can't have the things I would like or even travel. I guess I was having a pity party..allowed some days I guess.

Then while walking in great weather talking to my friend, I just stopped. I realized that yes I was having a pity party. I am so very blessed. I have so much more than a lot of people. I have a roof over my head, food to eat...that thought alone made me feel so guilty for feeling sorry for myself. A car that I can drive. When I feel lonely, I know I have friends and family I can talk to. Like my friend Lacey that walks with me. She even tells me that if I can walk so far at my age..then she my "age" But I do have my health another blessing. I do know some people that are younger than I am that don't do near what I can do.

Yes I am blessed..maybe not in "things", but in every other way.

    emoticon emoticon My very same sentiments. God says to live simply. There is no need in my life to keep up with the Jones'.

    My only regret in life is that I didn't pay more attention to what God had to say early on in my life and teach my children as well.

    I finished my walk with my friend. Now it is time to water the garden and watch the plants grow from the warmth and sunshine God sends us on a daily basis. It is also a good time to meditate and send up Thanks to Jehovah the hearer of Prayer.

    May U be blessed with a good week. MA
