1. I was on call and got to go to church this morning and this evening (the kids did the Christmas play during the evening service). 2. Got to love those after Christmas deals. 3. More days off. 4. Christmas goodies (I'm talking about the sweets of course). 5. Hearing the children sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
1. not forgetting the reason for the season. 2. finally home warm and snug after a snowy weekend stuck working and spending the night at the hotel near the hospital. 3. my sweet husband who has done a lot of our Christmas shopping. 4. very sweet parent and grand parent in laws. 5. the neighbor who had pitty on me while I was shoveling and scraped our driveway.
1. The roads were icy but I made it to work okay early this morning. 2. I have the best sister ever! No particular reason, I just do! 3. The Lord has blessed me with more than I need. 4. I have my health. 5. The warm cozy bed I had to get out of this morning.
This is my daily delight diary. My goal is to post at least 5 things that make me happy or things I am thankful for each day I log onto blogger. No matter what kind of a day I'm having, this is my reminder that I am blessed.
A pastor, a teacher and a coworker inspired this idea. Several years ago my pastor preached a message titled, "It Could Always Be Worse." The sermon talked about how no matter what your going through God can get you through it and you can almost always look around and see someone going through a tougher time than you. The teacher was my psychology teacher about a year ago. He said that one way to keep your mind sharp is to reflect on your entire day before going to bed, and write down the best and worst thing that happened. Lastly my coworker talked about keeping a gratitude journal of things she was thankful for and writing in it each day.
