I won the Lottery.
And I still don't have the perfect wardrobe or house. Not great legs. Not spiritually where I want to be. Could be a better mom. Could be a better wife. (All comments made by my family members at this point will be changed to glowing reports of my efforts).
And it's because I only think about the changes I need to make and yet do the same uninspiring things every doggone day -like surf the web- (what the heck am I looking for??) instead of making decisions in my life that will make a difference. (But not perfect. I can't adult most of the time, don't make me do perfect).
Today is the day! I am making those differences! And it's not even Monday! (Are you serious right now? Nobody starts anything unless it's on a Monday. Sigh). I have new goals, like healthy eating and exercise, becoming more prayerful and I'm finally taking some chances. As in starting a blog about things that really don't go together like how to have a good marriage and decorate your house and how to survive your children when they are smarter than you.
And by the way. I never won any cash, it's not that kind of lottery, but I have been granted freedom and choices and the same 24 hours everyone else has. I am choosing to be grateful for my life and enjoy my winnings.
I won the lottery.
And I bet you did, too.
