It's almost Valentine's day. A day I used to laugh at because I thought it was either silly or a ploy by the card companies. But, honestly, nowadays I like it. This world could use a little more love lately.
Yesterday I had a rough day. Nothing went so wrong that I even have a right to complain, but through a compilation of events, I was just downright grumpy. So grumpy I was even admitting it to people, and had to apologize to someone once. Now, the person gave me a free pass since I'm "pregnant and hormonal", but honestly I didn't deserve it. Why was I grumpy? Why was I letting these harsh thoughts come through my mind? Well, sure part of it might be hormones, but the other part of it is that sometimes its hard to be joyful and patient amidst affliction. But, the honest truth is: I have so much to be thankful for. I literally have no reason to complain. Each day is a new day - in fact, each moment is a new moment where we can start fresh and be joyful, patient and faithful. So today? Today I am thankful. So very thankful for the blessings in my life and the opportunity to live another day.
