Today marks one month before my daughter gets married. It also marks the moment when I start to really focus on wedding preparations. The shower is this weekend and then it’s multitasking galore.

During the past month, I have been almost complaining (ok, I was complaining) about the busy-ness of my life with two graduations and then this up-coming wedding. I was lamenting the fact that I couldn’t multitask with this many details involved. But all the comments I received from all of you were those of congratulations and exuberant well-wishes.

And then I realized something – IT’S ALL GOOD. ALL GOOD!  Why am I complaining?  Where is my thankful heart?  Why am I wrapped up in myself instead of wrapping my heart around the good things that are taking place? These events are GOOD, really good, and something to get really excited about.

So today I am grateful for the goodness and sweetness of life.  I am thankful for the goodness of my life.  It’s all good.

Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won’t feel so thankful then.
