365 days. Seems like a lot, doesn’t it? But, when we break it down into 52 weeks, or 12 months, time seems shorter.
On January 1, 2013, we felt like we had 364 days to do so many things. Even 12 months seemed like a long time to start that project, lose weight, go to school, finish school, etc. As January faded into February, and Winter moved to Spring, Summer, then Fall, some may have questioned, “where did time go?”
So, as I sit here on day 365 and look back over my life, I can say this:
- For 365 days, God has saw fit to wake me up with a reasonable portion of health and strength. Not only did He wake me up, but he woke up my husband and my children. I am indeed grateful.
- For 52 weeks, I had clothes and shoes to choose from in multiple closets in my home. There was fan and air conditioning on hot days and heat on cold nights. We threw food away, had frost growing on food in the freezer, and our pantry never went bare. I am blessed.
- For 12 months, I was gainfully employed. May not seem like much, but it wasn’t too many years ago that I was unemployed. Even in this year, my husband lost his job in February, but had a new one by April. God is indeed good.
365 days. 365 blessings…and counting.
