Sometimes I get a bit grumpy. Sometimes all it takes is one grumpy moment to spawn multiple grumpy moments. As this is not the "Ten Grumps of Grumpiness" blog hop, however, I will take various annoying situations and focus on the bigger picture. I will look up, where the view and perspective are clearer. I will be thankful!
Annoying Situation: A telemarketing call interrupted my morning prayer. The telemarketer hung up on me when I asked him to please add me to the do not call list.
Thankful #1: I have a working telephone.
Thankful #2: I can pray anytime, anywhere.
Annoying Situation: Our home internet service was down for about 24 hours.
Thankful #3: Real life, with no computer distractions.
Annoying Situation: Parenting isn't always as I pictured it. Even after being a parent for a quarter of a CENTURY, I still run across scenarios that never seem to be mentioned in any parenting book.
Thankful #4: See Thankful #2
Thankful #5: John is handy with home repairs. 'Nuff said.
Thankful #6: Someday, we will laugh about this. I think.
Thankful #7: I have an interesting, challenging job. I am Mom.
NOT-Annoying Situation: Spring is here!
Thankful #8-10: The backyard is showing signs of growth and beauty.
Thanks to the skywriter who brightened my day, and thanks to John for snapping a photo for me!
