Back to normal

As I walked into the office yesterday, for the first time in months, I felt like my normal, outgoing, confident, driven self. I don't really know how to explain this transformation. All I can think is that over the last few months, my attention has been shared between work, family, wedding, Luke, etc. and it has taken life settling down for me to realize how streched thin I've been. Looking back now, I see that stress over the last few months made me cranky, short, and a little negative at times. I can gleefully say that the wedding high (although I loved it while it was present) has worn off, life is getting back into a more normal routine, and I've gotten 7+ hours of sleep the last two nights. Glorious!!

Today I am reminded of many blessings in my life: my incredibly supportive husband who encourages me to chase my dreams, a great job that challenges and grows me daily, friends that I laugh uncontrolably with on a regular basis, a puppy whose excitment never dwindles when she realizes her momma is home, and a God that loves me more than I could ever fathom, despite my imperfections. I am thanking the Lord for these blessings and a little bit of normalcy today.

What are you thankful for today? How how the Lord blessed you recently?

  6. I definitely can relate! I was in a funk for the longest time! After going on a mini-vacation to visit my family I finally came out of it! Today I am thankful because the sun is shining and I get to spend the day with my hubs! & on top of that he has TOTALLY blessed me through answering a financial prayer :)
