Through it all I can’t shake the feeling that I am incredibly, amazingly, beyond-belief blessed. I am loved by God. I live in a country where I’m free to worship Him. I have hopes and dreams that have a very good chance of coming true if I work hard and smart enough. I have a family that cheers me on. Noveltea’s readers join in every week and share my triumphs and trials with me. I can read, write, think, reason, and understand. I have the ability to make choices.
I have two jobs (my writing and non-writing) which I enjoy and am stretched by. I have food to eat. Shelter. Memories. Books. I have health that allows me to actually get up in the morning and work. I can make a difference in the world. There’s a box on my writing table full of various white chocolates given to me by friends. I have little children at church who run up and give me hugs each week. I share inside jokes with friends.
The list could go on and on, but since I want to retain that enjoyability I mentioned from my first job, I’d better end here. I’d be delighted to hear some of the things you’re happy for this morning.
