When you find a way out of no way, it is fantastic to figure out how incredible you really are and enjoy the wonder that is you.
Almost everyone has heard the expression, “A man works from sun to sun, but a woman’s work is never done. As a wife, mother, and business owner, I am always up and at something. All day every day I have to find a way to make things work for my family and tho in my circle.
I am a wife and a mama and I get it done! In addition to being an entrepreneur in my own right, I help my husband run a business. I mother 4 children. My Simmie just moved into her own home for the first time. My son, who I call my Golden One has just entered college. Additionally, I have twin college freshmen. These things keep me busy!
Each day, my to-do list is eclipsed in length by my must-do list. Yet, I still, make sure my family has clean sheets and fresh dinner every day. I give each child personal attention. That is not easy with 4 of them and one of me. My husband of 31 years is still in love with his wife in today’s divorce-crazy culture. In other words, I find a way out of no way. THAT is awesome.
Many of you who are reading this post do incredible things, fantastic things, amazing things. You have friends who say to you, “Wow, I don’t know how you do that, I could never do that.” Some among you do not thank God for the miracles you pull out of your hat. Instead, you respond, “No, it’s nothing, anyone could bake a cherry pie, and braid six kids’ hair. Anyone can do all that and cook a five-course meal, and do the grocery shopping. Furthermore, it is nothing to do all that and still look ravishing for my spouse. The fact that I get it all by 10:00 am is nothing at all.”
If you find a way out of no way – don’t hide, celebrate!
If you are able to do all that and still find a way out of no way, recognize that and celebrate it. Too often we play down the fantastic things we do. We refuse to acknowledge the awesomeness in a goal we have achieved. When we do that we insult the person complimenting us. We also lose an opportunity to thank God. It is a wonderful thing to have something that makes someone think we were awesome in the first place. Each time we are complimented for doing something, it is an opportunity to be thankful. When we find a way out of no way it is an opportunity to show others the gift God has given us.
On this fantastic day, we should acknowledge that we are pretty awesome when we find a way out of no way. We should be grateful for that and acknowledge the awesome things about us that others see and appreciate are miracles from God.
So the question for you this fantastic day is what fantastic quality about yourself are you going to stop, acknowledge and thank God you have?
