For the past couple of months, I have been totally consumed by my job...and totally miserable. I have faced major changes brought on through no fault of mine, and feeling some major pity for myself. This week has been the pinnacle of hellishness. I need to find a way to rise above all of this, because it's starting to take a toll on my health.
Let me acknowledge publicly how thankful I am for my blessings. It's time to focus on something positive instead of the negativity I've been engulfed in.
I am eternally thankful for the day I first laid eyes on my wonderful husband of almost 26 years. He has been my rock and has always supported and loved me, no matter how much of a tendency I have to be self-absorbed in my problems. I am the luckiest woman alive because I have him.
I am equally grateful for the incredible, strong, kind, bright children God gave my husband and I the privilege of raising. They amaze and delight me every day.
I cannot forget my wonderful, generous parents who have loved me unconditionally through thick and thin, as well and my kind, loving mother-in-law.
When I look at these awesome people who surround me, I have no choice but to let go of some of the pain, uncertainty, and fear I've been feeling over the last few months.
And of course, most importantly, the reason for the season. The birth of our Savior all those many centuries ago.
I hope to get back to regular blog posts, because I really do enjoy them. I've lost sight of so much that's important to me. Thank you for reading this if you've made it this far.
I wish all of you joy, love, and peace now and always.
