I'm grateful for tedious
In my life I'm provided with many opportunities to remember to be grateful. Today provided more than usual.
A child I care for was dropped off today with her mother in tears. Now, when people cross my path in tears I make every attempt to make sure they live with a smile. I asked what was going on and if there was a way I could help. She tells me about the recent news this last round of invetro didn't take.
I became instantly grateful for having as many children as I do have and also to be trusted to care for so many others.
A few hours later I receive a phone call from another parent. She needed an emergency baby sitter.
And hearing the turmoil in her voice made me grateful that I've managed to find financial revenues that also allowed me to be home with my children
I was then called for food. If a family can't afford dinner in my neighborhood they typically will Just come to my house. I learned how to cook for armies o.k. a dime. Not always the best food but out can do wonders for adm empty tummy.
Again I was grateful for the knowledge my childhood and upbringing gave me. This makes it possible for me to provide the services that I do....
The point of this blog is every chance to become displeased or feel put out is also a chance to understand where gratitude can takes over instead.
