It is surreal and nothing short of a blessing. We couldn't have asked for things to go any better. I am grateful and humbled by the blessings that have been poured out.
And then there are moments I'm caught a little off guard. I hope when I share the goodness in situations full of blessings like this that life does not appear to be just perky perfect. It is never my intent to seem like I just have to wish it and it happens or that everything goes our way. We are blessed beyond measure, but reality exists here just like it does everywhere else.
I could make a laundry list of the things that are less than perfect, but I don't think there's much to be accomplished by doing that. I don't need to focus on the things that aren't going well, although they weigh on my heart heavily. Sometimes I wonder if it would help give critics a dose of perspective to really understand the day to day. When it comes down to it, my day to day is pretty great. But everyone has their trials and we're silly to think just because something good is happening for someone that they've escaped their fair share.
The husband and I take the good with the bad. We enjoy the sunshine and figure out how to weather the storms that are sure to come. We try to keep a positive outlook. And above all, we thank heaven for the blessing to be here together- true abundance. We have grateful hearts tonight and a knowledge that there is One who is mindful of us and has a plan for our little family right now. We are so grateful.
