I'm off work today and so far it's been relaxing. Time off either unexpected or a normal Saturday is always a struggle for me to find the balance of relaxing and productivity. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this.
The last few weeks have been extra hectic for me. I'm slowllearning ( very slowly) to say no. I have to re-remember my priories and reassure myself that its ok to stop once in awhile.
I've also been remembering to be thankful always for the life I have and not be whiny about the life I thought I would have by now. Such a little word, always. Doesn't mean most of the time or when I feel like it. All. The. Time.
It's all about contentment and I think I'm finally figuring it out. God is very patient with me and I am most definitely thankful for that.
So today I'm thankful for:
An apartment to clean
An oven that works
A husband who has a heart to serve God and see the men of San Francisco on fire for Him
Old and new friends
An extra couple days off work
A fresh table cloth and a cup of coffee
