As I lounge here in my nice COOL home, I have been thinking of how thankful I am of this past week. It started out a little off...AC died and repair meant ordering in a new part , children particularly tiresome due to heat, and money being tight at the end of a pay check. BUT- I have been putting reading the scriptures and saying meaningful prayers to the test. Life hasn't gotten easier, but I have been more able to handle it. It has been like a little reservoir inside me has been filled, so it took just a bit longer before I was all drained out. I was more in tune with blessings-the weather has been overcast and cooler (high 80s instead of 90s) which has made living in our home without AC so much more bearable. All of the wearisome appointments gave us an opportunity to get out of the house at the hottest points in the day. I have been repeatedly blessed in many ways and would normally have missed them. I had just a little more patience (I'm no paragon, so any little bit keeps me on the good side of the law) and a little more ummph to help me get through the day. For that, I am thankful.
I think I can get used to feeling filled.
