“Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are.”
I read this on facebook the other day. Need to post it in huge letters in my kitchen, my office, my bedroom, my bathroom, my car…… Because, although I seem to prefer worrying about getting the next job done, paying the bills, rounding up more customers, ordering nuts for the candy and plants for spring, I am truly blessed. In so many ways!
I have 47 years of memories to treasure. Thank you, Nathan.
I had the best childhood a girl could ask for. Thanks Mom and Dad.
I get to make my living playing in the dirt and feeding people stuff that they don’t really need but makes their lives a bit sweeter, yummier. Thank you to those who have taught me how to do what I do and those who work for me and keep me on track and looking good!
I am blessed to have all sorts of critters in my life. (Yes, honey, I mean you, too!)
Living in North Dakota, USA, where I have the freedom to make choices about the important things in life – religion, education, vocation – is a blessing so few have. Thank you to those who protect that right for me and mine!
And then there is the rest of my family: the family with whom I grew up and consider mine; the one I married into; and the next generation of both; and my close friends, those who listen when I babble, are there when I need. Thanks for treating me like your own.
And, above all, I am blessed by the grace of God. He knows I have done naught to deserve all of this!
