Weekend Reflection

Posted by

The holidays have come and gone it is now January 5, 2008. This week I have learned to count my blessings and be thankful for today because you never know what tomorrow might bring. A friend of mine lost her father suddenly just before the New Year. You never know when it is going to be your time.

Despite all of my personal problems, stress and worries I still have my health and my beautiful children. It is time to think positively and treasure all of the wonderful things in my life. Good always outweighs the bad. Even though my nearly 2-year old daughter tore apart our house and drew all over her brand new doll the other day she is getting smarter by the minute and is too cute. When her dad was picking up our oldest from school she sat in the back seat and started counting. She counted to ten over and over again.

Our son is nearly 6 months old and still not sleeping through the night. I am tired every day but he brings me tons of joy. He’s getting his first tooth and smiles and coos all the time. He’s also rolling all over the floor. Just his smiles and giggles help me to forget about all the stress in my life.

My oldest daughter can get sassy sometimes and isn’t a very good listener but she too brings a smile to my face. She helps out around the house and with the little ones when I ask. She is also very smart. I learn new things from her every day.

If you are under a lot of stress and are worried about what is in your future in 2008 like I am count your blessings. Think about all the good things in your life. Hug and kiss your children. That always makes me feel better. If you have a positive outlook positive things will happen. Smile and say hi to a stranger. You might just make their day a little brighter.

  1. Its very true- that we need to remind ourselves of that are lives are short and we need to cherish those around us. I am reminded of the Psalm:Lord, make me to know my end.And the measure of my days, what it is. That I may know how frail I am.

  2. You really should put the comments link closer to the post. It was so difficult to find!I like your blog about screaming children and to get out of their way … I try to let them go amok at home but reign them in outside.

  3. Thank you for this! I have a 2.5 year old and a 10 month old (who also does not sleep through the night, I might add) and it always helps to be reminded of how special everything in our lives is!

  4. My daughter is my anchor, during many days of stress due to school, work, family pressures and ill-health –when I don’t know which way is up she is always there with a hug and a smile, so simple. I hold on tight,even when it means letting her see my tears, and she always tells me it will be alright, in her 4-year old wisdom.

  5. Hey just becoming a member, glad to be here! I'm Lucy and I am inspired by my near death experience, I'm a fan of running and getting wholesome 🙂

    I've been concerned in some other forums and have located this place to have very much more effective information, so it helps make sense to eventually post!

    PS, how do I change the time zone for my account? It's kind of weird having the time like 5 hours off lol

  6. Hey just becoming a member, glad to be in! I'm glad to be right here as a final point, heading to post considering that I've been reading a long time.
