30 Days of Thanks #14- Being Ahead
Throughout the month of November I am writing about the first thing for which I am consciously thankful each day. I am doing this simply as a way to be more intentionally grateful. For more on this project, check out the first one or even last year’s 30 Days of Thanks.
Wednesdays are my long days. I usually get to work before 7:00 and go home around 5:30 with just enough time to scarf down some food before coming back to church and teaching the Young Adults Class. Last Wednesday was the same as always—non-stop go until around 5:00 when I got the message that we would not be doing the Young Adults Class.
I’ve got to confess that I was not really happy about it. I had already completely prepared the lesson and had even put off some other very important tasks in order to make sure it was as good as possible. I was seriously stressed and then I was told that much of my time had been wasted. At least that’s the way I viewed it then. Today is a different story.
This week I am reaping the benefits of my unintentional planning ahead. I am looking forward to a nice, relaxing day of normal work because I am completely ready for tonight. I’m sure something crazy will happen, but until then…
Today, November 14, I am thankful that last week’s really busy Wednesday has turned this Wednesday into just another normal day.
