I always want to be honest here. And I also want to always be thankful…and I think I’ve pretty much managed to do both. But today, I just want to say that I’m HAPPY!
Honestly, there aren’t many days when that would be the word used to describe it. Joyful, yes. Happy….not too much!
But today, I am happy and so very thankful! I am so glad my children are alive and relatively healthy. : ) There are other things going my way today too: I actually “like” my husband today. I can still walk without the assistance of a cane, walker, or God forbid, one of those motorized “Jazzy’s”! Although my days are numbered on that front, apparently. It’s gorgeous outside and warm. My daughter said something hilarious this morning, and both of my kids are all smiles today.
I just can’t think of one thing that is wrong, depressing, or despairing in my life right now. Boy, I wish it was like this every day. But I am fully aware that it is not. So, I’m going to allow myself this one day to bask in the joys of having dodged a huge bullet with regards to my son’s health. I don’t think I breathed all day until I got the good news. So, maybe it’s not so much happiness I’m feeling….maybe more like relief. But whatever it is, I am ENJOYING it!
I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
I do realize that tomorrow will probably not be as good as today, and I will praise Him anyway. But while today is here, I am going to praise Him with my whole heart….and just be HAPPY!!!!
