Before going to bed tonight, I just felt like taking a minute to list a few blessings from the day. It’s a Monday, and like a lot of Mondays, I didn’t go into it feeling particularly excited about its contents. At the end of it though, there were lots of hidden gems (some, surprises) I don’t want to overlook. In no particular order…
-Lunch with a friend. (which she selflessly made me, and which cost me $0.00. Both of these facts are a blessing today:)
-A friend who shared her free drink card from JP’s and ordered us a double chocolate coffee smoothie. Then she also shared wisdom, which was, admittedly, just as good as the smoothie (if not better. (Even though double chocolate IS pretty fantastic!*))
*Who doesn’t like the chance to make up rules and use double parentheses every once in a while? Especially on a Monday?
-A run on the beach tonight. Perfect, albeit hot, weather. Sunshine. Fresh air. Exercise. And the kind that I’ll feel tomorrow. So good.
-Simple dinner at home with jmk. Sometimes I like to get fancy with dinner. Sometimes, simple is just SO nice.
-Time to peruse my favorite blogs and sites in the quiet of the living room. Winding-down-on-a-Monday kind of bliss.
-Woke up today and it was still Summer. Yeah. I really like this time of year.
-Realized a prayer or two were answered today. This is probably the best blessing of all. It’s so amazing to see God working tangibly in my life. Truly.
Ok. That just about does it. There are other things, but for today, those were the highlights. I should stop giving Mondays such a hard time.
Hope Monday treated you well today, too. Now, to bed for me. Tuesday awaits!
