Can you believe I get to go to bed and when I wake up there will be fresh clean laundry waiting for me in my laundry room? It's a funny thing: we put the clothes in, they wash, we switch; they dry and then we put them away.
We sure are blessed.
Happiness, I've found, comes from the way we look at things.
The other night I was cooking dinner for my family and another family. When straining the noodles a big portion of them fell onto the floor. I was already running late so cooking more noodles was not what I needed. After a short pause, it was as though a little light bulb went off in my head. I said aloud "Oh look, the food we are so very blessed to have just fell on our nice clean kitchen floor, in our nice warm home... what a bummer."
Funny, huh? Sometimes something as simple as noodles spilling on the floor can be the straw that breaks the camels back after a long day; but maybe we should just step back and observe the situation:
1. Noodles cooked over a hot stove
2. In crystal clean drinking water
3. In a warm home
4. For delivery to friends and my healthy, wonderful family to enjoy.
5. Where that food will nourish us and we will sleep comfy and cozy in our warm beds.
We have so much to be Thankful for, if we just stop and look around us.
