Finding Blessings in the Ordinary
As part of my resolution to approach this new life year differently, I have been trying to find blessings in life's ordinary things.
This morning, I flew out of the bed at 7:07 am - not good for a girl who has a thirty minute commute and work begins at 8 am. I showered as quickly as I could and slapped on the minimal amount of makeup allowable by law but didn't get out the door until 7:40. I was halfway to the office, scowling because I just knew I'd be late yet again, when I realized that traffic was unusually light - no backup on Sherwood Forest Blvd., no daily congestion at I10 and College Drive - just smooth sailing from home to work. The scowl left my face and I had a big ol' smile when I arrived at work at 8:01.
