And yet I am still...

You ever just feel like its just one thing after another...I mean really...

I have surgery on Saturday..
I haven't received my paper work from the insurance company yet so that I can get my stuff back...
I went last Friday to get the oil changed in my truck...just the oil, only to find out that I needed 4 brand new tires...
So Saturday I had to go and take care of that...
Sunday was pretty chill....
So yesterday was just one of those days...got up at like 5am, worked from 7am until 5pm, had a project that HAD to be done by noon...
A friend of mines cousin died of sickle cell anemia last night
My sister-in-law has to have surgery on Friday
My oldest nephew worries me
My father is sick
...then things just went upside down in the blog land yesterday...
I am tired today...I just feel blah....


BUT

I have no reason to be sad, disappointed, discusted with anything in life...why because I have life...

....I have family and friends that love me dearly and I do mean dearly!
....I can get up and breathe fresh air
....I can read I can write
....I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food in my fridge, and a car and means to get back and forth to work
....Despite the fact that my tires cost me ONLY $550 (yea they were more but I went to Sam's) I have a mother who decided to call me and tell me come and let's go and price tires on Saturday and I only have to pay her back half...
....although my house was broken into, it wasn't destroyed and I found out yesterday they caught the dude that they think is responsible for all the break ins
....I have wonderful mentors that guide me and love me as if I was their own child
....I am not worried about my surgery nor about my sister-in-law...I have faith
....money is always coming in and going out....that's nothing new
....I have a good job making aiight money and learning I am actually learning...
....my review for my job is next Tuesday and I think I will get that raise
....did I say that I have the GREATEST parents well I do!
....I can see changes in the Kiamsha students, just stuff that they are saying it amases me
....I just got pictures of a friend of mines son, he was born pre-mature and he made it-and is just as precious as he wants to be
....I have two girl friends that are getting married-they make me believe in love again
....love, love in the world between people, all over-love makes me smile, just the thought of it, the hope of it
....regardless of what I have been through and what I will face, I have been kept



Life is good there is no reason to allow the things that happen to bring me down...there is so much to just appreciate, so much to just to be thankful for...we always have to look at the fact that life is beautiful, appreciate where you are, who you are and where you are going...appreciate it all...

Peace and blessings...

Got your text last night. Glad they caught that guy who was breaking into places around your neighborhood.

Also, I am glad you ended this post on such a positive note. It's good to see that! Good luck on Saturday with the surgery. I am sure all will go well.

This was very insightful!! Sometimes it's so easy to wallow in the bad that we forget to see the good... And remember (as cliche at is sounds) that there's no testimony without the test...

@miss alisa-you are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

$500 for some tires!!!!!!! We dont even have a Sams' Club here. My tires run about $135 each.

@negro-I know right, I got off...especially for my truck...heck my mother had to pay like $800 for her Cadillac tires...and that was on SALE! The other good thing is I can get them plugged or pacthed for free...totally get a new tired first 3K miles AND get them balanced and rotated for FREE every 7500 miles...check with BJs or Costco whatever you do have....
