Have you ever had one of those days, when everything just feels right with the world? I am lucky enough to be having one of those today! I cannot really even tell you why I am having this overwhelming feeling of contentment. (I did my check-book first thing this morning--and that does not usually result in the sort of feeling I am experiencing today!) Despite my deficit in the check register, I was still filled with this calming peace!! Maybe it was the sweet text I got from my husband this morning--totally out of the blue--but so comforting to know someone out there thinks I am wonderful--he ignores all evidence to the contrary!!
Maybe it is the sweet smell of fall in the air--to drive into town with the window rolled down gave me such happiness today!!
Perhaps it is because I remembered all my errands before I returned home--I almost forgot one--and a still, small voice reminded me to stop at Pioneer Party right as I was passing!
I came home and accomplished something that had been on my " to do" list for so long--it brought tears to my eyes when I finally finished!
I prepared dinner while my children were still at school--I marveled at my kitchen stocked full of all the things I need, plus so much more!! Dinner is waiting in the fridge--and because of busy schedules, that is more comforting than many of you could possibly know!!!
I made cookies for my children--which they could smell as they came through the door--their excitement made me feel like a good mom!!
As I accomplished all that was required of me today, I was surrounded by beautiful music--and the thoughts of good neighbors and friends made me feel far more blessed than I rightfully deserve. ( but I will take it anyway!)
Certainly everything about my life is the same as it was yesterday--crazy,busy,and hectic--but for today at least my Heavenly Father is seeing fit to bless me with a tremendous ability to see my life for what it is--far from perfect, but, Oh, so blessed!!
( I kid you not--as soon as I finished typing this--cassidy came in and told me the car was making a funny noise--my battery is dead--Heavenly Father must have a sense of humor!!)
