Giving Thanks - Day 16
Today, I am thankful for the joy that only comes from being a child of God. It's been a long week (despite having Monday off of work). Dr. D has had midterms every week for the last few weeks and this week was no different. Basil is sleeping even less well than usual. Two old aches/injuries that flare up from time to time are both making an appearance this week. And this whole day I felt just a little out of sync, a half step off of where I needed to be. And there are times when that would have all piled up and I would have found myself snapping at the kids, getting frustrated over the smallest of things, feeling worse and worse. But this morning when I could already tell it might be one of "those" days; I chose to focus on the joy that comes from Him. And though I am still tired and sore and not feeling even close to my best, I am thankful for that joy.
