unexpected reminders

Back in action, and I mean it this time.  That’s enough of the “woe is me, my life is changing…wah wah wah” posts.  But really, I am going through a lot right now.  And it does get overwhelming.  Who would I be not to admit that, right?  right. right.

The Easter Bunny made one last stop at my parents’ house for me this year.  Yup, as you all know this is my last unmarried holiday.  But the contents of the basket were extra meaningful this year.  And while I never lose sight of the actual meaning of the holiday (Easter is BY FAR my favorite…I mean, it’s the essence of everything a Christian believes in.  There is simply NOTHING more powerful than that.  There just isn’t.), I do always enjoy all the rest that comes with the holiday, too.  In my basket I found a coffee mug that said

“Stress?  Prayer and Chocolate helps every time.”  I mean.  How true is that?  And as you all well know, I’ve been super stressed lately, but I haven’t depended on prayer like I should be.  It’s funny how a simple mug which you consume your coffee from each day can remind you of important things like that.  You know?

Also, there was a decorative hanging plaque that says:

“Dreams do come true.”  Yes.  Yes they do.  I am living proof of that.  In fact–we all are.  Dreams do come true, but they don’t come easy.  You have to work for them.  But I’ll tell you one thing, if you actually want the things you dream…it won’t feel like work at all :)

So my point tonight is to just take a second each day to remind yourself of the things that are most important.  It is so incredibly easy to get bogged down with the every day crap that we forget how blessed we really are.
