Blessed

Normally I do wordless wednesday post, but was reading inspirational blogs today and thought I would deviate.

This Friday, as I have mentioned ad nauseum, is my last working day, but this post isn't quite about that! I am searching, like all of us. Searching on how best to live my life. Enjoy life. Fullfill my life. On 5 minutes for parenting there is this post with a wonderful prayer. On I choose bliss Tabitha writes about how blessed she feels and happy. On Pagan Culture, Magaly writes to on how blessed she is. These posts made me think....that I am still afraid to let go and leave everyhing in the hands of God, or to open up my heart and life for every person that decides to smile at me or be nice to me. I worry way to much on how things will sort out for my family who are in financial difficulties and might pull us slightly down with them.

However, I am blessed.... with a caring, loving husband and cheerful child, a house that though far from perfect or what I want to call home gives us shelter and security, a car that takes me where ever I want, enough food - more than we actually need to survive, clothing to keep us warm and so much more. So, I have to thank these 3 blogs for reminding me of the blessings I receive daily and show me that unless we surrender to fate, God or whatever it is you believe in, we will be acting against our own interests.

How about you?

I'm thankful for dear friends across the miles who are not afraid to pass on the bliss! It's funny that you find my post inspirational because I read your blog, see your pics with your hubby and babe and I tell myself "Magaly love happens, look at it, one of these days it will be you!"

It's easy to get caught up and overwhelmed by everything in life, balancing what we want to do with the things we have to do. I know in my heart how blessed I am with all that I have yet I still get blah a lot and I finally realized the problem is within myself. That in between the fun and the chores, I HAVE to make time for myself and take care of myself, mentally and physically!!!

Well, I am glad you find inspiration with the friends you visit in blogland. I do too! Thanks much for sharing in my SITS day with me.

It's good to remind ourselves that the constants in our life (house, husband, etc) ARE things to be thankful for.
