GratiTuesday 2.21.17

February 21, 2017

First, let me start off by saying that I am happy to be alive this Tuesday and apologize for going MIA last week! I had the flu y’all – you know, the one where it hurts to talk, move, swallow, breathe and even think?! It was terrible!!!  I have NEVER in my twenty-something years felt so awful. It started last Monday afternoon at school, from then until about Sunday morning I was glued to my bed and let me just say, it was not a pretty sight. 

This GratiTuesday, I am grateful for my health.

It is something that I take for granted every single day. It is a beautiful thing to have lungs that allow me to breathe fresh, clean air. It is marvelous to have eyes that allow me to see the breathtaking views of God’s greatest work. It is wonderful to have legs that allow me to climb mountains. And, It is an amazing privilege to have an inclined heart set in the direction of heaven. It is a shame that sometimes I don’t realize that that’s enough. 

As the week progressed and my brain got less and less foggy – I feel like I did some really great reflecting. If I cannot feel grateful with what I am already given and blessed with, why do I think I could possibly be happy with more? Whether that be more money, more things, more this or more that.. I have to stop letting the things that I want, make me forget the things that I have. Peace with life is found from within, and I’m not really sure why I have been looking elsewhere.
