So I'm borrowing today from Ordinary Courage's Friday routine (although as of this moment she's still on yesterday's post about a yodeling pickle. Go there for a good chuckle): Today I am Trusting, Grateful and Inspired...
Trusting that by grace, inner strength, prayer, and the encouragement and support of friends I will break through the bonds of what is presently afflicting me. I can't change someone else. I can change how I respond to the situation at my door.
Grateful for a week of applying some much needed discipline to my life. I have FlyLady and my PC director, Stephanie, to thank for ideas, recommendations, affirmation and support. Life is better in those departments already, and sunshine has a way of spilling into other areas in need of light.
Inspired by the fresh start that each day brings. Yesterday's tears and sighs can give way to laughing at Wipeout contestants jumping over hurdles with stuffed sheep attached to them. I don't think I've laughed so hard, and for so long, for awhile (it was the sheep that did it--the contestants hadn't event started). The humidity that saps the juice from my hydrangea can be ignored once McKinlee starts chasing herself around the yard (you think I'm kidding). The clutter that closed down my desk the night before disappears while a 15-minute timer puts me through my tidying paces. There's inspiration everywhere. Everywhere!
How about you? In what are you trusting, for what are you grateful, and where are you finding inspiration today?
Now I'm off to water the hydrangea and clean off the top of my refrigerator.
