Have you ever had “one of those days”?! You know a “Monday”? Yesterday, I had a Monday on a Friday. Seriously, it was an intense day. Nothing life threatening or scary, just a really rotten day.
Let’s see…..first of all before work, I went to the barn to feed and water my calves. I scooped up a bucket of water for them. Unfortunately, I bumped the bucket on the gate and it dumped/splashed ALL over my jeans and coat. It was COLD! 6:30 in the morning kind of cold! 😩
Next, my youngest and I were headed to school and my truck broke down. Although some would cry or pitch a fit, I’m so thankful that it broke in front of a shop. I went to school with the guy who owns the place. He pulled my truck off the road, until we can haul it home. Also, I’m so thankful for small towns. A lady from my Church saw us, turned around, and took us to school/work. She also returned at noon to take me home. If you follow my blog, you know that we live 30 minutes away in the country! I’m so incredibly blessed by a great big problem solving God!
Let’s see, I also dumped coffee down my jacket at lunch and later discovered I’d lost a hen. My extra truck also had a bad tire which couldn’t be fixed and they only had an expensive one in stock.
All these things could have put someone in to tears or throwing a fit. I’m working on looking at the positive side and counting my blessings. For example: I use lots of creamer so, my coffee didn’t burn me. I have lots of hens, and she was sweet but, not my most favorite. I’m so thankful that I had the money to buy the tire. I’m also very thankful for a friend’s husband who is hauling my truck home today.
I hope during this Holiday season, you are looking for the many blessings in your life. This world can be so scary and sad. We need more happy, blessing counting people!
Have an amazing weekend and blessed Thanksgiving.
