Not only was I sick for a week, but I was a grouch.  I was so SO mad over losing a promotion I thought was rightfully mine.  I worked all week but let me tell you, I did not do it with a grateful or happy heart.  I just did it because that's my job.  I was not a pleasant person. 

Over the course of the past week, my heart started to soften.  I tried to see the blessing in this sadness, instead of the hurt.  No having to drive in for meetings in the rain, no long meetings, no wearing outfits that made me uncomfortable.  A chance to get back to exercising since the weather will hopefully start cooling down soon, a chance to read my Bible in the morning instead of trying to beat traffic.  Maybe a baby on the way, and I won't have to find daycare.  Maybe if a baby isn't coming, a puppy  (been dying for a puppy lately, I miss my dog Roscoe so much!) and starting a garden.  I decided to be happy where I am right now, even if I don't think I should be here. 

I went to church today.  It was a very long day.  Sometimes when I'm working on kids ministry, I don't feel effective.  Today was one of those days.  But I went to lunch with my bestie Ginger afterwards and that was so nice.  Then I helped Bucket with algebra homework, and the boys are doing their laundry and I'm going to start dinner soon.  Mr. R is in Oklahoma, not sure if he will be home for Labor Day.

Animal print dress found at Goodwill a few years ago, for $6.  My Trotters shoes and a JCP cami for $10.  I've worn this exact outfit before.  Not every outfit can be new!

I should have worn battle gear and armor today.  It was like that today. 

Time for hair color again!

I don't even bother anymore. Just throw it up in a clip and I'm done with it.

Just wanted to drop a line and say that I love your outfit. And also to say that you made a great choice to focus on the positives. When God does not open a door- it was not the right door to go through. God will work everything out, God bless, Lisa :o)

Thank you Lisa! I wish I could say that I immediately thanked the Lord for not getting my promotion. I guess I'm a slow learner. ;)
