There is Sunshine In My Soul Today...
I can't help but sing that song today, and mean it. I feel so happy. I feel so grateful. There are so many things that I have to be joyful about.
* I am living my dream of being a wife and mother. I adore my husband and everyday I thank God above for saving him for me. I joke that HeRoos' shyness put him just under the single-woman-radar but really I think he had a shield that could be broken only by me. I know, I know, I've always been a romantic but I can't help it if I am head over heals for my husband.
* If I could have any job in the world, I would want to be a stay at home mom. It's happening and I am so grateful. I'm afraid BM may develop callouses from all the kisses but he is so irresistible and I just can't stop. I am loving every minute of the stage he's in now. He's happy, healthy, alert and he's not mobile yet. I can still get things done.
* I am happy that we have elected a new president, Barack Obama, to lead our country. I am inspired by his determination, strength, and heart. I am overjoyed that Americans are looking past skin color barriers and at the heart. John McCain also impressed me with his concession speech last night. I'm sure his pride is bruised but he is fully supportive of Obama as President. I pray that Obama will bring about positive change. I also pray that he will allow God to guide him in all the decisions he makes. God bless America!
With all of these things that I have to celebrate, please don't think I have a perfect life. Quite contrary. BUT I do have so much to thank the Lord above for. A broken dishwasher, car in need of repair, and a few extra pounds aren't enough to stop me from letting the sunshine in!
