Blessed not lucky

So I get to hear A LOT about how "lucky" I am..... I used to just brush it off and be all "yep, I'm lucky". Oh you're so lucky to have JDub... he's such a great husband/father. Oh you're so lucky you get to stay home and "not work". Wow it must be nice to not have a car payment...

side note-- I would just like to state for the record I do have a great husband. JDub is fabulous. But he also likes to sabotage me..... like by leaving water beads unattended in a bowl on the bathroom counter for 3, 6, and 8 year olds to throw all over the place while he is conveniently gone at a meeting and wont be back for several hours..... and also, hey I don't like to toot my own horn but I am pretty fabulous too... JDub's pretty blessed himself!

But I've come to realize it has NOTHING to do with luck... and everything to do with being blessed by God.

I choose to see the blessings too... I mean I have to actively remind myself to look around and see what I am being given. For instance... today I went for a walk and Miss M fell asleep. In a way I thought aww man there goes an afternoon nap... but I had to remind myself it was a blessing! Any nap is a wonderful thing, no matter what time it is. That's why I am able to write this entry... I actually have a few minutes to myself... no kids!!! Now if you choose instead to look around at all the bad in your life and wonder why you aren't blessed... well that's a different story. I mean life on earth was not meant to be all rainbows and unicorns.

I mean your rainbows and unicorns aren't going to be the same as my unicorns and rainbows right?!

There will be difficult times, there will be trials. Persevere people!! Easier said than done I know... I again have been extremely blessed and honestly haven't gone through too many terrible tribulations.

I pray that you will be blessed today... and everyday... remember to count those blessings :) I truly mean that in a sincere way, not a condescending tone!
