Today has really just been one of those days for me.. you know the days you WAKE UP TIRED! Today is Hannah's first football game for mascot , i have tons of cake stuff to get done for the weekend, trying to get paper work from doctor's office stating my bio kids don't have diseases (for the adoption), and having to make a wal-mart trip with the twins just not cooperating with me at all, and still have to go to game tonight just seemed to kind of overwhelm me . Then I starting thinking.... I have no room what so ever to complain today. I'm alive, I'm healthy, my children are healthy and I have a sweet baby boy waiting for me in China. Life is actually good. Among all the things that are frustrating for me today I'm truly one blessed lady. I read on someone Else's post on facebook that they were fixing to have a birthday next month and for every year they have been alive they will do a act of random kindness. Wow! That really sunk in with me. How awesome is that to give God glory for the years he's let you live by doing acts of kindness. I decided i too shall follow that same path. When April rolls around I'll be doing 35 acts of random kindness. Sounds awesome, huh? Don't get me wrong.. I do acts of kindness just not 35 in one week. So I've been praying the rest of the day for God to help my patience and telling him how truly thankful for everything I have. Even in the choas of my days God still reminds me there are more things to be thankful for than to complain about. Someone also decided to do a act of kindness for me today. I'm not sure if I even know them.If I do,my mind is just old. But this person chose to bless us today without warning and I'm so humbled and thankful. I can't express the words for that. God is opening my eyes in so many ways all because we decided to obey him. God is so good.
