I woke up today feeling pretty overwhelmed. My day started at 5am so I could take Jon to work since we have to share a car. The sink is overflowing with dirty dishes. Laundry is piling up. It’s my day to volunteer at the school and I have editing and a million and one little things to do on top of it. I didn’t sleep well last night and I’m tired.
But on this day, I am grateful to be that kind of overwhelmed.
Because it means I have a husband who is willing to get up at the crack of dawn and work a physically demanding job, often 15 hours a day. I have a car to drive, my kids have food to eat and clothes to wear. They have great teachers who allow me to be in their classrooms and I have a job that I love.
Today, I am overwhelmingly grateful.

P.S. Full disclosure…I stole this from my FB status update on 9/11, but I’m still feeling just overwhelmingly blessed by my life.
