As I type this, I’m sitting on the bus home from work. I honestly have no time to blog anymore. Between leaving the house at 7:30 every morning, heading off to work a full day, trying to catch a nap on the ride home, spending time with the baby and hubby, and trying to squeeze in dinner, I barely have the energy to do much else.
As I type this, most of my financial worries are taken care of. My student loan payment has been lowered to $5, all because I made on time payments for nine months. I have another payment plan in place for my other loans and our phone and electricity bills are paid. We even got insurance! God is good.
As I type this, I’m reflecting on the journey life has taken me on. I am a wife, a mother, a decent cook, and a pretty good friend. I am gearing up for homecoming in November, and my 30th birthday. Most importantly, we will be blessed with a new baby in 2013.
As I type this, I’m thinking of how blessed we are to see another day, despite its challenges. My cousin was murdered in Trinidad last month. He leaves behind three children, and hadn’t even made his 30th birthday yet. Life is so precious. It can be gone in seconds, yet we take it for granted.
Be grateful for your blessings, no matter how small. Be thankful, even when it seems there’s nothing to be thankful for. I’m thankful for each of you who read here and have become good friends. I’m thankful to have met some of you in person, spoken with you on the phone or Skype, or found on facebook. Peace and love to each of you.
