We interrupt this blog post for this newsflash:
I found this link last night on why queries get rejected...scroll to the bottom if you only have a second -- there's a handy dandy pie chart!
Now we return to your regularly scheduled post...already in progress.
We should all count our blessings from time to time. It's easy to be grateful for good health, being employed, etc. But sometimes blessings come in unusual packages and it's to our benefit to recognize them as such. This is good advice if you have children.
Especially if you have children.
I had a learning opportunity like this recently.
It was just another morning. Hectic, yes, but I was ahead of the curve.
Son had boarded the bus and was on his way to school.
The girls were dressed and fed.
The younger daughter was waiting for her friends to come over so they could walk to school together.
The oldest was in her room doing whatever it is she does in there.
I was dressed and ready to go.
This alone is quite a lot to be grateful for. Any morning without a crisis is a good thing.
there I was
in the bathroom.
I saw something on the floor.
I assumed it was a piece of plastic (also known as mistake #1)
...it was about 4 inches long and an inch wide on one end and maybe a quarter inch wide at the other end.
This mystery object was reflecting the light, which is the only reason I happened to see it.
I (being a seasoned mother of three) grabbed a tissue to pick it up.
I'm so so so so so sooooooooooooooo grateful I grabbed that tissue.
I mean I was REALLY REALLY REALLY grateful.
It was a giant loogie on my bathroom floor.
Evidently one of my children sneezed and didn't realize they left it behind.
I'm going to ASSUME they didn't see it flying outta their nose or else I'd have to hurt them for leaving it on my floor. (shudder)
I'm also so so so sooooooo grateful I didn't step in it.
I was barefoot.
See? Gratitude comes in all kinds of strange places and packages.
Tell me what you're thankful for...(and if you're stumped, you can always be grateful I did NOT post a picture of a loogie with this story)
