even in Australia.
I love that book.
More than that, I have been trying to count my blessings.
Count my blessings, name them one by one.
Count my many blessings, see what God has done.
Yes, perhaps I have had more than my fair share of diarrhea today with 2/3 of my children suffering some stomach ailment, but at least I don’t have to worry about them dying from it.
Perhaps I don’t get to go to the home school conference I was looking forward to, but at least I have the freedom to educate my children at home.
Perhaps my husband and I haven’t really seen each other this week, but at least I know how much he loves me and our family and how hard he works for us.
Perhaps I haven’t been feeling the best, but at least I am not bedridden and can still take (mostly) good care of my family, and I’m grateful to be having another child.
Yes, perhaps people close to me may disapprove of me and my choices, but at least most of my loved ones know me and support me.
Perhaps the whining is still echoing in my head, but at least I have some time to myself now.
Perhaps I was disappointed with some people I’m trying to buy stuff from on eBay and Etsy, but at least they are going to rectify the situation and I can buy the items in the first place.
Perhaps I had a temper tantrum today and acted like a spoiled child, but at least my children were quick to forgive me and love me regardless.
Yes, perhaps this was not the best day in the world.
