Stopping to smell the…daisies

Have you ever had such a dirty rotten no good week that you actually cannot wait for Monday to come? Well this week I was welcoming Monday with open arms and open mouth kisses. I desperately needed last week to end. Like some how all the bad things that kept piling up would magically disappear once Monday came around. One can hope right? 

So last week was just one of those weeks where one thing after another went wrong. How is it that life doesn't just throw one thing at you and let you deal with it and then another and then get over that one and then…well you get it. Instead life seems to think it funny to just go bam, bam, bam, bam, bam…are you down yet? No? BAM!!! Then you're left standing there kind of in a daze of disbelief because you didn't know so many things could all go wrong all at once. It's simply just rude.

Either way, once Sunday rolled around I literally felt like I couldn't breathe. Would I even make it to Monday? Some how that was my only goal. Just make it to Monday. 

While driving in the car something kind of clicked and I realized I really needed to stop and smell the roses. Count your blessings…name them one by one… so that's what I did quietly to myself.

*Deep breath in, deep breath out*

I have the best of friends. Ones that will stop what they are doing and come just chat with me and then run errands with me, just to simply keep me company because other plans fell thru. 
A best friend that when I take frustration out on her she is patient and always offers to help me when I need it. 
Amazingly talented women that pull me on to their beautiful and wonderful projects. I couldn't be more blessed and inspired by such women.
Family that will text me when I'm feeling lonely and make me laugh. 
A husband who tells me it's ok to cry and has more patience than I ever thought possible.

I have a really good life. Most important I have really good people in my life. 

SO hi there Monday. Sure glad I made it to you. If this week is like last week I might not make it to next. But just in case it is…I will try to focus on all of these great things instead of all the flying crap.
