There is always something to be thankful for

Friday started off to be a wonderful day... my daughter was off work and going to the eye doctor, my dh was helping a friend, and I help a lady on Tues. and Fri. (her husband suffered a stroke several years ago). I recieved a call from my daughter saying her car would not start and my husband was on his way to check it out.... about a hour later my husband called wanted me to come pick them both up...his motorcycle had broke a shock(thank goodness he saw it before they both hopped on to come home). It was 4:00 when I arrived and we had to come home and get a trailer to haul our daughter's car and the motorcyle home. We arrived home 10:30. I try to look at the whole picture and not let "stuff" like that discourage me. I am thankful they were both safe, made it home safely, my dh is a "jack of all trade" and can fix the car.

This morning when I woke up, went outside, looked across my front yard, saw the wonderful scenery God has blessed us with. I knew everything is going to be alright...because yesterday's misfortune could have always been sooooo much worse.
Have a great weekend!
God Bless!

So true Kathy - sometimes we forget that in the moment though. The older I get, the better I am at seeing the good in everything - it's one of the blessings of being over 50 I think!

hugs, Linda
