This Day's Blessings

Today was one of those crazy, hectic days at the office, which left me feeling quite depleted and longing for retirement.  As I drove home, I recited my devotions as usual, and, at the end of the devotions, I asked for a grateful heart with which to receive this day's blessings. 

Several years ago, I got into the habit of writing down at least 5 things to be grateful for each day, in my diary.  I have discovered that actively looking will reveal an abundance of blessings in each day.

Today, my blessings included having a job, which enables me to provide for myself and my daughter, which I usually enjoy, not withstanding the occasional crazy, hectic days like today.

I will have another rather hectic day at the office, tomorrow, too, as I strive to meet a schedule deadline for a project.  No doubt I'll be stressed by the end of the day.  But I will look for each day's blessings and know myself to be blessed.

Do you make it a point to look for each day's blessings?
