But I did go to the doctor where I found out I have a respiratory infection and double ear infections.
(Yes, I promise. I am an adult, but I seem to get ear infections all. the. time.)
Anyway, I got a shot in the backside and sent home with some antibiotics. I should live.
But I started feeling bad for myself. I mean, I’ve got about a million things going on this week and it really isn’t convenient to be sick.
And then I went to the grocery store and that always puts me in a bad mood. I love to cook, but absolutely hate picking things up at the store. It’s just no fun.
And then I looked at my schedule for the week and fainted. Well, maybe not fainted, but it definitely sent me into a tizzy. I’ve got two tests on Thursday, a photo shoot on Friday, my first dress fitting (two hours away) and a birthday party on Saturday, and another test on Sunday. I’m sleepy thinking about it.
Corn harvest is in full swing and things are about to get even crazier around here. Colby is working late tonight and probably tomorrow night and the night after that…
But really, it’s all about perceptive. If I choose to play the woe-is-me game, I will be unhappy. Instead, I’m going to play the I’m-really-blessed-and-super lucky game. Because you know what, I am. Truly.
Life is good today. I’m not really that sick. I’m not dying. Today, when I went to the grocery store, I had plenty of money to buy groceries. I have the opportunity to go to a great college and better myself. I am very blessed.
And so are you.
These pictures may seem random, but really there is a connection. They all make me smile.
What makes you smile today?
