Ordinary Blessings

Yesterday was an ordinary Tuesday.  I went to work. I came home.  Tripp and I walked the dogs.  I cooked dinner.  We watched GLEE.

Nothing exciting there.  No school thing to make cookies for.  No big dinner plans or night out.  Just Tripp and Me. 

For about half a second I started to feel a little bummed – empty nest whatever – then I looked at Tripp and looked at my adorable dogs.  And then I felt a little ashamed for not recognizing how incredibly blessed I am.

  • It was a gorgeous evening and I have a healthy body with which to walk.
  • I have a wonderful husband who I adore.
  • My daughter is healthy and happy in college
  • I have adorable pets who make me smile everyday.
  • I am surrounded by family and friends who love and support me.

It completely changed my entire outlook on the evening. 


For an ordinary Tuesday, it turned out pretty awesome.

Peace, Kelly
