The kids are back to school and mine is a player on the undefeated Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High School football team. This month we’re going to celebrate. I don’t know about the rest of you but I had a very rollercoaster-ish type of summer. There were times when I wanted to give up, cried and felt overwhelmed by fear with everything going on. Mixed in with all of that I was in love, proud and smiling. I stayed strong and with the assistance of my family and having a little faith, it’s time to rejoice.
Some days the only thing that got me through was knowing that it could be worse. I had to remind myself that I was still blessed above anything else. There were times when I would repeat my favorite bible verse, (Proverbs 3:5-6) and carry one. I’ve made it through my 1st month on the day shift. The Periscope channel is growing. I’ve finally figured out how to us my Roku TV. I actually had brunch with my father at a restaurant. On that note, I have so much to celebrate. Not to mention, I saw my 93-year-old great Aunt Lela and she still was as funny as ever.
You can’t get caught up in the storms of your life, especially when you have some many things to commemorate. I don’t know if you need to pour yourself a drink, dance, jump or run and tell someone – do whatever makes to remember there is way more to get excited about than be sad. If you don’t know where to start just 🙂
