When I woke up this morning, I took a sip of my coffee, then I immediately became overwhelmed with the thought of all the things I had to do today, like any other day.
I had 3 loads of laundry to do, dishes, clean the house up from my two tornadoes, the porch needed to be cleaned up, take care of the animals, balance the checkbook, update my website, complete some writings I haven’t had time to finish and oh yea, did I mention laundry.
While I was making the kids breakfast, I was slapped in the face again with another task for the day. GROCERY SHOPPING!
I took a deep breath and smiled. I was reminded that I should be thankful for my overwhelming busy day.
I am blessed to have a house to clean.
I am blessed to have a family to go get groceries for.
I am blessed we have clothes to wash.
I am blessed to have a vehicle to drive.
I am blessed we are able to pay our bills.
I am blessed that I have animals to feed that others only dream of having.
All of these daunting tasks and todos we always take for granted.
I hate doing the laundry. I feel like the more I clean, the more I have to clean (if you get what I’m saying). It’s extrememly cold out and I don’t want to feed. I hate spending the money and time to grocery shop only to come home and realize I forgot something (I know that doesn’t seem much like a hassel, but I live 30 minutes from the store). I only have so much time to get everything done during the day before getting the kids from school. It’s just overwhelming at times.
But, when I saw it in the perspective of, “atleast I have a house to clean”, I was made extremely more grateful to be blessed with all that I have and my busy todo list.
With that being said, I will leave you with a lyric I wrote a little over a year ago called “Blessed” ❤
