The past few days of my life have been, honestly, up and down. It hasn't been one big incident that has happened but a multitude of smaller items that have piled up. I've accidentally locked my car in a parking garage, forgotten about assignments due, lost one of my ID's, missed the bus and had to spend time and gas driving, and not gotten a chance to breath. But I also have gotten so see fireworks, and laughed with friends. I'm normally not the long paragraph type of blogger because I know I get a little board when I read super long blog posts, but it's also nice to remember whenever you're feeling like you're starting to crack that you're not alone, and that when you hear a pastor speak on Contentment and the following week is full of situations that are trying so hard to make you feel anxious and frustrated that it's not by accident that's happening!
I really do love my life and am very grateful for everything I've been blessed with. So I guess this is just a little reminder to both of us to refocus on what's important in life and what will be a funny story later when you retell it but right now-not so much. I named my car Winston and now looking back it was pretty funny to see him locked in the car cage; it was like he was in a car kennel.
Two hours after writing the two paragraphs above I check again and someone had turned in my ID. Grateful I went home without having to buy a new ID, ate some food, and took time to breathe; sometimes you just need a reminder. Have a great day!
