Some days just are...

"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:33-34

Yesterday, just was... The day before that, although Thanksgiving, was still just a day, and I assume that today will be the same. Grandma keeps calling looking for information on how my days go, and what is going on in life. I tell her life is the same. Life isn't the same, life is different everyday... But how do I describe my everyday life to a person who is so far away, and isn't living it here with me. My days are simply days in my life. My days are just days to me, and I don't know what kind of information you really are looking for. I wake up, I get ready, I catch the occasional soap opera, I work, I eat lunch, I work or shop or daydream or nap or try to figure out my near future, I wish I were is school, I am glad I am not in school, I want a new job, I am very thankful I have this job, I pray, I love, I see Matthew, we sit on my couch, I always wish he didn't have to leave. I smile, I laugh, sometimes I cry, I smile some more, because I am happier than I've ever been. I pay bills, I make the occasional dinner, I buy more fast food than any person should. I look for cars, I look at schools, I don't save money like I should, I watch movies, I see my cousins, I spend a little time with my very few friends. I worry about my cousins, I pray for them constantly, I wish I could fix it all. I pray for my girls, I try to lead them, I fail at it everyday. I am thankful everyday for Matthew, and my family, and for God's ever faithfulness and what He has given me. I am thankful for forgiveness and second chances, and the chance to live each day. That is my life grandma, that is what is going on. When I say life is good, it is fine, that everything is the same, that is what I mean. Mostly I just am. Mostly days just are. I am me. I am living life. And to me my life is great, it is incredible, and it is indescribable to those living outside. I am happy, I am comfortable, I am at peace, and I am at home. Everyday I am learning, I am searching, and I am finding a little more. I am dreaming, and I am starting to live my dream. Grandma, that is my life as good as I can tell you today. That is my life in a nutshell, from the outside looking in.

Today I am thankful for:
telephone calls
my own comfortable bed
the tiny voice of a 5 year old girl
pumpkin pie
an empty and happy house here
a very full and happy house 28 miles away
a precious family celebrating 25 years
