Today I woke up and started my morning with some reading. The day is always better for me when started with scriptures (but I still forget that fact and sometimes wonder why the day is so crazy and realize I forgot to read that morning). Soon after I was joined in bed by my girl for some morning cuddles. Today I've felt a fresh perspective as I've thought about recent events. It feels like a gift- a reminder of all the fresh blessings that I need to be grateful for. A grateful heart has made for such a great, full day. I need to remember that. A few things currently on my list of things to be thankful for:
+produce from the garden. I'm making my first batch of salsa today (it's simmering as we speak) and I hope to share the recipe soon.
+loose ends getting tied up. I made a call a while ago which was returned this morning, and now Miss A is scheduled for piano lessons. Can't wait for her to have this experience.
+an organized home. Not that I'm there completely, but I'm motivated to get there right now, and that's a good thing. Not only that, but I actually have little bits of time to accomplish projects. And I'm getting rid of things. Feels so good.
+inspiration. Sometimes I feel less than inspired. I often doubt the impressions I receive. I'm still trying to improve spiritual communication. It is a learning process, and a work in progress to be sure. But I have been reminded that I really can be inspired, and that is a true blessing.
