I may not be......

I love to read. Always have. The thicker the book the better, even when I was a little girl. In fact I tease Emily because she doesn’t read anything over an inch and a half. I love all books, with the exception of romance, but I tend to lean towards memoirs or auto/biographies. Why? Because I can read those and go, “you know my life isn’t all that bad”. It’s a reminder to me that my life doesn’t suck after all. 

So when I stumbled onto a blogger that hasn’t posted in a while it was a wakeup call to me once again that life doesn’t suck for me.

I may not be where I want to be right now but……
                I have a job

I may not be at the weight I want to be but……
                I have my health

I may not win the Mother of the Year award but…..
                My children are doing amazingly well 

I may not always agree with him but……
                My hubby is a wonderful man

I may not feel like cooking every night but……..
                We have food in the pantry

I may not have the cleanest and perfect house but…….
                Our house is warm

I may not have the newest and latest car but…..
                My cars are paid for

I may not be where I want to be right now but…….
                I have faith and trust in God that I will be soon.

“Nothing taken for granted; everything received with gratitude; everything passed on with grace.”
