Half Full.

Sometimes when I have a bad day...or weekend...or's the little things that bring me through.  I am reminded that God only gives us as much as we can handle and I find comfort in knowing that I can make it through.  My family, my friends, and my faith...such an amazing support system.  Oh, and I can't forget chocolate.

There have been a few surefire ways to cheer me up this week.  I thought I would share a few of them...

  • Breakfast in bed.  Seriously!  It wasn't even Mother's Day.  Cinnamon bread french toast.  Amazing.
  • I have a pile of gifts from Jillian this weekend.  Pages and pages of of drawings that she made me.  Her final gift?  A butterfly candle from her room.  "Momma, since you don't feel good...I wanna give you my butterfly candle.  I have a Dreamlite and you don't.  You could use this candle instead."  She is amazing.
  • A surprise pizza delivery sent from my sister in Georgia.  Seriously?  Ding-dong.  Pizza, breadsticks, and salad at my door with a pizza boy saying that even the tip has been paid.  No effort dinner and it tastes even better when you didn't pay for it.  :)
  • Friendly and supportive texts, notes, and phone calls.
  • A second delivery this weekend.  You won't even believe this one...  Beer and ice cream.  For real.
  • Hugs from tiny hands.  Myles has such a sensitive heart and he shows it. Love that.
  • Cuddling with a brand new, sweet smelling, squishy soft baby.  Less than a week old and simply adorable.  I soaked in her babyness (yes, it is a made up word, but I love it)...and even loved changing her diaper.
  • Watching Myles play basketball and relish in every single basket that he made.  
  • Tulips.
  • A daily passage book to read and learn from.
  • Working in Myles's classroom and connecting with his little friends.  They each have such special hearts.
  • Chocolate.
  • Cuddling on the couch surrounded by blankets and pillows.
  • An MSU win or two.  
I am truly blessed and listing out these amazing blessings proves it.  AND - I didn't even list all of the amazing people making these "things" happen!  Blessed for sure.

Having a bad day?  Think through all of the things that went well.  The people that make your day, week, life special.  That's what really counts.  Let God take care of the rest of it.  We can't control everything anyway.  I learn that lesson...daily.
