Where You Choose to Focus
When I walked into the house Friday afternoon, I had every intention of having a productive weekend. During the early morning hours Saturday, I woke up unable to breathe due to a raging sinus infection. I spent most of the weekend in bed or laying on the couch. As I began getting ready to tuck in for the night, I caught myself scolding myself because I hadn't gotten much done and dreading starting the week fighting being sick. About mid-scold, I stopped and started naming all of the reasons I had to be thankful. I turned my words around to sound more like... "I get to go to work tomorrow, even if I'm sick. I am blessed to have a nice comfy bed to snuggle in when I'm sick. I am thankful that my sweet husband cuddled under with me to keep me company." We don't have took look very far to find things that disappoint us, or things to worry about. But the same can be true about our blessings..... it's just a matter of where you choose to focus.
