As if that weren't enough, my son finally got the letter which I had been praying for. UW-Platteville awarded him his bachelor’s degree. I don’t know why it means so much to me, probably because I so badly want my bachelor’s degree, or just because so few people in my immediate family have their college degree (is there anyone?). In any case, I am so proud of him and wish him the very best. Now he just needs to get out there and get on with his life; he has so much to offer.
I want to just bask in this happiness. Praise God that things are finally turning out for us. Then those nagging thoughts creep into my mind. Something bad is going to happen now. What is it going to be? When will the other shoe drop? I try to force that negativity out of my head, but it’s either me or just plain human nature to not be happy just being happy.
Heavenly Father, thank you for all of the goodness you shower down on us. Help me to be more appreciative of all the gifts you have given. Let me accept today for the beauty it holds.
