I woke up this morning missing my breakfast in bed. Max is the cook in the house, just ask any of my kids...LOL Mom can put a meal on the table but she really has to work to be a good cook. Baker is a hat I wear with no problem....cook, well, I'm working on it!
So before I could really get into my oh poor me, God reminded me of all the blessing I have in my life.
I had a Godly Mom who never gave up praying for me even when I didn't look like I was coming back to God. She prayed I would have a Godly husband even when on the outside you couldn't see it when I married.
I have a Dad who would do anything he could for me and loves me very much.
I have children who are wonderful and are such a blessing to be with.
When I look over at Max sleeping next to me, I am reminded that a good sister in Christ lost her husband and friend of 56 + years Friday.
I think of a friend who's husband was so overwhelmed with things outside his control he decided in his pain he couldn't deal with it.
I am surrounded by family and friends who would do any thing they could to help me if I just asked and I'm lifted up in prayer.
While things are not the same, I am still so blessed beyond measure. I sing a song of joy today for a God that never changes, never leaves, never disappoints. I miss those I love but I know that we will be together again. Not a seperation, just a long wait until I see them again. I hate how distracted I am with the things that matter not and forget that those who love us are what matter.
So this Mothers Day I want to say THANK YOU to everyone God has put in my life and in Max's. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so much love. If I could I would send flowers to all of you!
