Stressed blessed


Strange title right? Let me explain. Over the weekend we put our a/c on in our bedroom and it smelled disgusting. We call for service, being the planner I am, we of course have a service contract... So they come to service it and they tell me it needs to be taken out of the wall for two week to be cleaned etc. etc..... LONG story short we need a new a/c, this one is shy of three years old and the old service contract I paid in full for, is now gone with the unit. New a/c = new service contract =  more $ spent....

So this stressed me out.

We also have a lot of things happening in the next few months. We have three monumental birthdays coming up for loved ones, a bridal shower to celebrate, a baby being born, a wedding, our son's dedication, Father's day, Memorial day and house guests coming to stay with us ... all which we need $ to purchase gifts, outfits or items for...

So this stressed me out.

Then, I sat back and thought about it. I realized how truly BLESSED we are. What problems we have lol ! Too many friends and family to celebrate our lives and their lives with???!!! An a/c in every room in a our home !  Our home, large enough to host our friends ! Come on now, are these really issues? Are these really things to stress me out? I think it's time I see these are my blessings and not as stressful things.


 And just like that, bam ! I did.

I agree! You are very blessed and have more than most. You have a wonderful loving (crazy) family. Wonderful husband and beautiful healthy baby boy. A roof over your heard and spare change in your pocket. Each day is a blessing and at the snap of a finger it could be gone. Don't sweat the small stuff. If you can't get gifts for people, they can deal with it. Breathe Bethany! Love ya <3
