Yesterday, I was in a fairly negative mood. I could blame it on the lack of sleep, or I could just say it was one of those days. Whichever it was...I just needed to step back, breathe a little and realize all the good things instead of focusing on little bits of negativity.
In fact, I had nothing good to say--that I couldn't even bring myself to blog. Typically my posts are up by 8ish AM. But yesterday? I just felt like if I sat down at my computer nothing but yuckiness would poor out. So I decided to forget the 8am post, and left for a full day of errands instead. Heck, I hadn't been out of the house (except to the mailbox) in 2 days. Maybe THAT had something to do with it? Perhaps. [Turns out, I did an afternoon post on my love for tweeting...]
But, I'm so blessed.
My life is really, truly exactly where I want it.
I'm blessed with the most precious little girl.
And I love dragging her around on my bajillion errands.
She is such a champ.
I just needed a little time yesterday to get out. Enjoy the beautiful cooler, crisp weather we've been having. Think about my recent crappy mindset, and re-vamp.
And I did.
Today. I'm feeling great. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that instead of my sleep getting broken up into 5 pieces (due to a cute little chica), it was only broken up into 2.
Either way, I'm thankful. For lots.
Today is a good, good day.
My family is home from Africa. They just landed in New York...and I am going to see their faces and smoosh them with hugs in just a few short hours.
I am elated.
I'm so thankful that so many of you prayed for them. I'm so thankful that they made it home from the 24+ hour journey home. I'm so thankful that they impacted lives while they were there and continued to make true friendships. I am so thankful that they're back in one piece (well, I'm sure part of their hearts are left there), and I'm so excited to hear their stories.
So today...I'll be off welcoming my family back and letting them give Emeline lots of hugs and kisses to make up for the time they've missed.
I'm all sorts of happy today.
