A hundred different thoughts have run through my head this morning. A hundred different blog post topics. None of which I have turned into a post. As one idea flew into my brain another was pushed out. None sticking so that it can be turned into a piece of inspirational wording.
My days lately have been starting with migraines thanks to this lovely bipolar weather. The rain brings pressure and the sunny days bring pollen. My regular allergy medicine is not helping and 6 out of 7 days of the week I’m waking to my head feeling like someone has hit it with a hammer, hard. The migraines weigh heavy in my head, affecting my ability to function and see, and causing me to have dizzy spells galore. Needless to say I will be thankful when this season is past, though it’s blooming beauty is one of my favorites.
My favorite part of my morning: my children entering at various times to say “Good Morning Mommy”, usually within minutes of each other. They don’t care if I get up, they just want to feel secure in the knowledge that I’m here and that I love them and that I know they love me. Which, oh boy, do I ever know they love me! No better feeling than that in life!!!
I am learning that the best things in life are these three and that there is nothing better than having them with me everyday, just as God intended. I feel a bit sorry for those Mom’s who send their kids off to someone else everyday because they often do not realize what goodness they are missing in their lives. It’s my honest feeling that society is not right on the send your kids away issue. That’s an enjoyment that cannot be replaced with a made for tv movie or any good book. And surely this is how God feels every time we connect with him. All his children, listening and loving him daily, never missing a smile from each of us. There could be nothing better than that!!
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. . .- Lamentations 3:22-23
