Random Blessings on a Wednesday
After quietly ringing in the New Year, I spent yesterday cleaning up around the house and putting away Christmas decorations. Then today was back to work...an exciting thing as this is the first New Year's since I started my own business. I feel so blessed to wake up each day and do something I love from the comfort of my own living room.
I was also able to grab a bite of lunch with my parents and the southern beau. My parents were in town today for a doctor appointment because my dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a couple years ago and he sees a wonderful neurologist in town.
It felt like such a rare treat for us to be together for a meal that isn't a holiday, and we were thrilled to hear my dad got a great report from his doctor.
It's the little things that really are the big things.
I'll leave you with this story (which I don't remember happening, but it made me laugh all the same). When I was a child, my grandparents' home was robbed while they were at church one Sunday. We all came over after church to eat lunch and take stock of what was missing. Apparently I surveyed the kitchen and said (with great relief) "Don't worry granny, they didn't get the banana pudding!" It appears I've always had my priorities in the right place ;)
