fostering a grateful spirit

this morning I was feeling very discouraged about one area if my life. I thought it was going in a direction that I was excited about, but well, it isn’t. you know that totally crappy feeling when you lose something that wasn’t actually yours yet, and you feel so frustrated and also so irritated with yourself for getting your hopes so high? not my favorite.
but then, God, with His tricky sense of humor, saw fit that I get unrelated good news in a related area of my life. He’s funny like that.
then I found out that I get to be an early reader for an author I really like, and then I get to blog about her new book! so fun!
and then I got to spend the evening with sweet young life friends. we danced

talked, sang and drank soda through someone else’s sock. yep, you read that correctly. soda. through a sock.

while at club tonight, 3-year-old Payton (who loves me occasionally but doesn’t about 80% of the time) crawled up on my lap and told me that she wants to feed giraffes this fall (something we talked about this past weekend) and then told me that sitting with me was her best part of the day and gave me a big hug. so precious.
I’m so thankful that, on the crappy days, God gives me beautiful moments to get me through. I don’t always get what I want (shocking), but He always gives me enough to get through.
