Hello World, when I left my home this morning, I already had ideas for a blog post in my head to publish before I started my day… I left early and beat the traffic and got to the office before everone else: oops one problem – I don’t have the key – and so I sat me down to continue reading from my kindle… By the time the office was finally opened it was 8:30 am- the were simply no time to put those ideas on my computer.
13:00- It’s lunch time now but am not going out for lunch – because I want to at least do a blog even if not as I had planned… and this ties in line with the title of my blog – really let’s not take things for granted and be grateful for the chances we have…
I finished reading Malala Yousafzai‘s poignant memoir on Friday and I realized there is so much we might be taking for granted in some parts of the world, while others are don’t even dare look forward to them;
Here I am who wanted to blog this morning and I couldn’t… after a little whinning; I realized I should be grateful for even being able to read and write – I remember when I could blog twice a day, read several other blogs, write a book in between, and go to school etc;
Just when I was musing for the upteenth time about my present ‘situation’… I just started to do the opposite and started to count my blessings including and most especially being reunited with my sons in our own Home;
It could sure get better… It definitely could have been worse PERIOD… I know and own my story and no one else can convince me otherwise mindful of all the tremendous unconditional love, support and even lessons I have received and learned;
I AM NOT TAKING ANYTHING FOR GRANTED ANYMORE: IAM GONNA BE GRATEFUL ALL THE WAY SO HELP ME GOD
Have a nice week everybody and hope this inspires and motivates all who hop by 🙂
