#MicroblogMonday: Here's to a new week

Two weeks ago, I had just about the best week ever. (God is Great). So awesome, that I knew it would be hard to continue to chase the high that it gave me. But I still didn't expect the week that followed be such an extreme opposite of a horrible week.

I think I'll just stick to this being a #MicroblogMonday. I'm worried about a few friends, I'm behind on my homework and Josh's hurt his back and wasn't able to work most of the week. (We're still not quite sure how he hurt it; we think it was a combination of several different things over the last 6 months.) Oh, and I can't remember the last time I deep cleaned my house.

Most of those problems are still with me this week. But I vow to make this a better week. I'm counting my blessings to remind myself that they outweigh my problems.

1- I have a good job. That's why I went back to school; so I could advance further with my company someday. So when the homework starts to stress me out, I remind myself it will be worth it in the long run.

2- Through difficult circumstances, I've been able to reforge old friendships. I didn't realize how much I missed having these people in my life. I almost forgot just how much I love them. Its been like a breath of fresh air to have them back in my life.

3- Josh is slowly starting to feel better. We had to see a couple different doctors and try a few different pain meds. And he starts physical therapy this week. Hopefully he is on the mend and this is just a minor setback. At least he hopes so; he's tired of being home bound and wants to start running and fishing again.

4- My house may be dirty, but its still a roof over my head. Those walls are filled not only with more than enough material things, but also with love.

5- Each day I am continually amazed as I continue to fall in love with Jesus more and more. Only to realize He loves me unconditionally.

I'm sorry that it was such a hard week, but it sounds like you're in a good emotional space. Hope Josh's back is better soon.
