“My” Week

calendar.gifWell, here we are almost halfway into June, and I look at the calendar and wonder where time is going! June for me is quite a busy month, this year even more so. I have to laugh when I think about next week. Within 6 days I will get to celebrate Father’s day (yea!), my anniversary (yea!), and my birthday (whoo hoo!). I used to think what a jip it is to have all those days land so close together, but I have more recently grown fond of “my week.” (Ok, celebrating my birthday on my honeymoon was a perk.) I call it “my week” not to consider myself “celebrate-able”, but more to realize what I have accomplished. I see this as a week to remember the many, many blessings God has bestowed on me, all of which I certainly don’t deserve.:

Father’s day: Reminder that I have 2 beautiful, healthy, wonderful little girls I get to take care of

Anniversary: Reminder what a perfect (for me) life partner God gave me to help me through all that this life can throw at me. (and becoming quite a cook, too!)

Birthday: Reminder that I am alive, healthy and able to do so much that others cannot, and that I have the chance to live each year for the God of the universe that has blessed me with so much.

Sometimes it is good to just sit back and take inventory of what we have been given. I just happen to get a special reminder on the calendar every June.

    What a lovely sentiment in a lovely post!

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I must do something about this pesky lump in my throat.

    Happy Father’s Day!

    Best,

    Great perspective! How do you even have time to think so deeply? It must be evidence of God working in your life. As to all your celebrations, it makes card-making a real challenge–trying to say something meaningful and profound without being sappy or repetitive.=) Thanks for the challenge! It is good for me.
