Man what a morning….do you ever feel that doing the right thing is not worth it.   I am feeling that today and need to really pray about this one.   I am ready to throw my hands up in the air in defeat.   Wait I think I already did….I am feeling very defeated. 

I jsut opened my devotion for today….and read………..

Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing – Psalm 100:2

“A willing spirit changes the drudgery of duty into a labor of love.”  Hmm…I just not sure I can muster the willing spirit again and again.  How many times are we suppose to continue to do this to ourselves?

Moving onto my day…..hubby left already for his conference.   He wasn’t so happy when he left and I hate that.  I think he really needed the days away from  his work and home.  And next week I get 5 days away from the office and home.  WOW!!

But today I am needing to get things done around the house.  I plan on cooking up some chicken breasts to chopped up and freeze.  Clean the entire upstairs and work 4 hours for my employer!  Not that I really feel like doing any of it, but it has to be done.

I am feeling a bit sad so I really need to focus on my blessings!   Today I saw this quote “Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how  to fly.”  Isn’t it funny how a quote is presented to you at just the right time…..this was what I needed today!   I am blessed with many many fabulous friends.   But today I am extremely grateful for two good friends at work.   In March when my kids got sick before I went on vacation one of my friends offered to do two of my placement visits for me and she had to go all the way to Duluth!.  She also offered to help with Josh’s open house and paint and make food.  She is fabulous!!  She is extremely humors and always brightens my day.   My other friend offered to attned court for me if the summons came while I was gone.  And it wasn’t an easy one…..she is always willing to help and we are weight watchers buddies!  She is more successful at the weight loss than I…she already hit goal!   I am very proud of her!   So why should I be sad…..I am truly blessed in so many other ways!   Sometimes you just have to refocus on that!

Off to try and get some things done before the kids get home from school!  Have a great day and count your blessings!
