Reminded Of My Blessings

I was reminded of my blessings yesterday.  It felt like a club had hit me on the head.

Every day I have a horrible habit, I'm going to call it an 'ailment', of being overly aware of our finances.  It's on my mind when I get in the car wondering if I should walk instead to save on gas money, I reconsider a purchase of some grocery item because maybe we don't truly need it today and it might be on sale later.  I'm woken up with debt $$ spinning in my brain.  I hate it.

While Christmas shopping/browsing with my youngest daughter I was tired, she was tired, we had had enough and needed a break.  While we sat with her "I-tried-on-10-pair-of-shoes-can-I-have-a-treat" milkshake, I saw a little girl who was unquestionably showing the signs of going through chemo.   Her grandma was holding up the most beautiful pink, fluffy, sparkly dress to make her smile.  This bald little girl.  Little girl. Cancer.  My eyes go to my healthy little girl.  Healthy girl. 

My heart was overwhelmed.  I am so blessed.  We are so blessed.  I will continue to keep track of our  finances but I shouldn't let it be my main focus.  The most important thing - THE MOST IMPORTANT THING - we have is our health.  We love each other, we are here for each other and we are healthy.
