Isn't it amazing how quickly a sense of gratitude flies out the door when we focus our eyes on self?
As I look back on yesterday, I see that I began with a sense of not being enough...moved onto a defensive position of justification...and ended the day feeling ugly and grumpy.
Yet I also look back and recognize the blessings I couldn't see at the time:
- Friends to break bread with - literal bread and the Word of God
- Finding the problem BEFORE it affected the innocent recipient
- Getting in the kitchen with My Hero to tag team dinner - we are so much more creative as a team than as an individual
- Face to face dinner time with all three of my boys
