Today was an emotionally exhausting day. There was an unexpected, unplanned event at work, which basically over took everything! I have the ability to stay calm and think in such a situation (for which I am thankful) and went into the "do what needs to be done" mode. At the end of the day it was satisfying to know that the situation had been handled to the best of our abilities and that everyone was safe and sound.
I am thankful for the blessings of today. For the breeze coming in the window as I was getting ready this morning, for the birds I heard singing as I went out to the car, for the vehicle in good running condition to get me to work, for the job I love, for the boss whose leadership is always in the best interest of others, for the rocker on my front porch (where I sat to relax when I got home), for the newly planted flowers in the pots on my front porch, for those who care and aren't afraid to show that they care.......... I am thankful for the blessings of today.
