Happiness Among The Chaos

This blessing says it all for me.

I have endured many hardships and difficulties in my life, but I am thankful for the blessings in my life as well. Everyone has endured hardship in their lives; it depends on how you deal with the circumstances in your life that determines the outcome.  I have noticed out among the community, there is no patience anymore. My mom and I went to a restaurant recently, the waiter said he would be with them in a moment, the couple walked out. They could not wait until the table was cleaned for them. Road rage is escalating, everyone seems in a hurry these days. When I went to pay my city bill this month, the clerk was surprised I wasn’t angry at my amount due. I realized I watered more in July because of the hot weather. The clerk was teasing me ,I should work part-time calming down the angry customers. We laughed. it is only one month the water bill is high after all. I have to budget also.

I realized life can throw a curve ball we didn’t catch. My life was forever changed with the deaths of both my husband and son.I keep moving forward everyday in the good things God still has for me.I juggle a graveyard shift, keep up with my writing and I care for my aging mother like so many other good kids out there. I have remind myself of this when mom is disagreeable sometimes. For those caring for aging parents you’re a good kid! It is hard to juggle taking car of the home ,work schedules and parents. God smiles down on us and encourages us in His strength, His humility, His love and in His comfort. I never forget this, I would not have survived the loss of my soon Levi if I had forgotten this for a moment. Life is hard as we all know, but life has so many blessings if we look for them. I do not have everything I want, but I do have all that I need. Life is good indeed!
