Most of us are familiar with All State Insurance. As a company they are changing their motto to “Good Hands for the Good Life”. Rather that focusing on the negative and fears in life, they want to focus on the good that can be found in our lives and celebrate that good!
I have to say that despite the negatives in my life I have so many things that are beyond good, they are great! I have been married to a very good man for ten years!
Our last five years has been full of ups and downs, trials in many forms and severe illness but all the bumps in the road have made us who we are today. We have learned to focus on what is truly important in life and not stress overly about what you have no control over.
It is truly the little things in life that bring great joy.
Having had great difficulties to be able to have children, I now have not just one beautiful baby, but two beautiful blessings. Both pregnancies were beyond difficult, they were stressful and trying but the outcome of having that newborn baby in my arms far out weighed any negatives.
When I found out I was again pregnant on January 2nd of this year I was devastated. To say it wasn’t something I was expecting would be an understatement. Not that I wouldn’t love to have more children, I would love many more but the reality is, it is very difficult on my body and very stressful each and every day. Now that I am about six months pregnant and my little girl is moving all the time, my heart yearns to meet her. I know she will be just as large of a blessing as my other children.
The reality is, for most of us, ours lives haven’t turned out exactly as we have planned. That is okay! We can’t plan life because life happens! We need to celebrate the small things that are good in life each and every day.
