Love, Life, and the Little Things…
I’m feeling good today. I took this picture this morning when I got to work because I wanted to capture what ‘feeling good’ looks like. Better yet, what having joy looks like.
You know how sometimes, even though you know God is with you…you can’t exactly feel Him? Well, today isn’t one of those days for me. I feel His hand on me and His presence in my life is evident. Not by some grandiose act or miracle, or door opened, or prayer answered…it’s just that I see and appreciate Him in the little things. I’m grateful for my life, for my husband, my daughter, our family and friends. I have a warm bed to sleep in at night in a home that’s full of love. There’s food in the fridge and I have a car to drive that runs fairly well and is PAID for. What more can a girl ask for?
I also took the picture because I wanted to document some personal progress I’ve been making (not for you to see, but as a note to myself!). I’ve been working hard at slimming down and rewarding my body for the hard work it endured to give birth to my daughter by eating better and getting some physical activity in. It’s a slow process, but I’m okay with that. So the big deal about the photo was that the shirt that I’m wearing, I was able to button ALL the way up (past my boobs, which, on any day – is a big deal)! The buttons aren’t screaming for relief and it doesn’t feel tight like it once did…as recently as its last trip to the dry cleaners about a month ago. LOL
So yeah, today is good day. In the sweet words of Miss India Arie, “it’s the little things and the joy they bring…”
Make your day incredible!
