On the bright side...

Sometimes I just need to sit down and remind myself of life's little blessings:

I have 15 meals to make it through the next 10 days. It could be worse!

One of the books I ordered for Christmas came as ordered!

I don't preach tomorrow; I preach Thursday. That means more time for preparation!

My cherished fish, AbrĂ£o, didn't die during the night as I anticipated he would.

It is significantly warmer in central Indiana than it is in Russia!

I just opened a fresh jar of peanut butter, and I still have at least one serving of Frosted Flakes left. (comfort foods!)

Next semester I can work all the hours I want because my co-workers' schedules are very limited.

At least I get to take one suitcase to Cambodia.

My graciously accommodating family is willing to celebrate Christmas a little early this year so that I can still participate in family traditions.

Laura Nelson is so so so kind to put our powerpoint together for tomorrow's presentation.

Once I am in bed, I am asleep! So even the few hours I sleep are guaranteed to be good.

I have plenty of points left for all the coffee I will need in the next 10 days.

Our townhouse is heated... very heated... and I am [semi-] convinced that too hot is better than too cold.

Mom loves me, Jesus loves me, Titus loves me...

Finally, Jesus is already on the throne!

It only took me about 15 minutes to come up with this list, and I am sure that if I gave it 15 minutes more, I could double it. Try it yourself!

All wonderful blessings, indeed! I know you are getting more excited every day. And, I agree...better to be too hot than too cold! Have a great week!
