Today Doesn’t Suck (and tomorrow won’t either)

I woke to the slushy snow that fell as I slept, but saw how even with absence of sun, the day looked bright in its reflection. Despite the cold, my House is warm and I lit candles to lift my spirit.

My Children may have complained about the lunch I made, but we have a choice of food and the fridge is full.

I was overloaded with wash as always, but today I felt blessed for being well off to cloth them with choice.

My floors needed a second vacuum over from my cat and dogs hair, but overlooked the work for their little hearts that jump when they see me. Their unconditional devotion is priceless.

The Day doesn’t suck because I chose to spend it cleaning and washing for my Family, the day is WONDERFUL because I have one to do this for.

The Day only sucks when we don’t take hold of it, when it is over and done and we’ve achieved nothing.

Not a goal, a good feeling or a good deed, be it for ourselves or for others.

Know what? Tomorrow won’t suck either. I’ll be given with luck, another day, to choose once again to make it good.

Happy Tuesday all!

Hugs, H.
