Today was a crazy day! I had a REALLY busy day at work and then got off early so I could go get my blood drawn. When I got to the lab I had to wait almost half an hour for my turn. The tech tried two times but couldn’t get my vein (a common problem for me). He looked at me and told me I had to come back tomorrow. I almost cired…I was thinking does he know how hard it is to be a working mom!! I got of early to do this!! With a 3-year-old in tow!! I know he tried his hardest he was apologizing profusely
As soon as we left my daughter started throwing a massive fit in the parking lot because she didn’t want to go home. I called the other lab near by to see if they could try. The sweet woman on the phone with a Russian accent told me she could try if I made in before they closed…in 20 minutes. I told her I would do my best but didn’t know if I would make it. It all depended on traffic. She said she would stay late for me if necessary. I made it to the lab with 10 minutes to spare, she was able to draw my blood on the first try and even gave my daughter a sticker for begin so patient.
I was reminded by a friend that someone likely had a worse day then I did today. Here are a few things I’m grateful for inspite of my crazy day
I’m grateful for the sweet Russian woman at the U District Labcorp
For access to healthcare
For health insurance to pay my bill
For a Burger King drive through that provides us dinner 🙂
For a sweet, healthy, strong-willed daughter (just like me)
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
One thought on “Gratefulness in Every Circumstance”
Good reminders. it does wonders for our heart and Gods heart when we are thankful. It opens the gates to Gods thrown when we have an heart of thankfulness.
