I woke up this morning, tired, cold and wishing I could turn back the clock. I was in no mood to go to work as I knew I had a long, busy day ahead of me. Once my alarm clock rang, I instantly had a bad attitude. I grudgingly got out of bed and got ready for the day. I woke my son up and got him ready for school. Even though he did not want to wake up, he got up and appeared happy.
As we drove to school, I heard him murmur something to himself. I said to him, “What did you say?” He said, “It’s so wonderful and beautiful. The sky is so wonderful and beautiful mommy.” I was happy he said that because that put me out of my misery. How was it that I missed the amazing view? The air was crisp and clean, the breeze was cool and fresh, and the clouds were simply gorgeous. So many times, we let our stinky attitudes block us from enjoying the day.
Instead of worrying about your long day, how much work you have going on, and about all your problems, why not take some time to just be grateful for what you do have. I am happy that I am healthy and have woken up to a beautiful day. Although I have a long day ahead of me, I will take it all in my stride with a positive attitude. I am also happy that I do have a job that can cover my bills. I’m also happy for my two healthy, rambunctious kiddies.
What are you thankful for?
