Thought of the Hour

I have found something that always makes me feel better when I am upset (as I clearly was today).  My husband buying me strawberry fruit bars to suck on.  I guess for me popsicle items make me feel childlike and that calms me.  

But the other main thing is being able to help someone else out.  For me, it often has to do with cooking since that seems to be something I came to naturally.  But other days it might be helping with an errand.  

I think it's because it allows us to sit back, take a deep breath and a good look at all that is good in our life.  How much we have that we sometimes overlook.  How nice it feels to be able to help someone with something they would otherwise struggle with.  God has funny ways of reminding us that we are indeed blessed.

  1. I agree! Whenever I am upset of frustrated at things helping someone or doing something with someone else in mind calms me. I don't know if it is because thinking of them and what I am doing for them changes my mood from annoyed to giving, or if thinking of that person makes me focus on my good relationship with them and/or all the good in life or if the answer is as simple as turning my mind to something else, or focusing on what I CAN do, instead of what I CAN'T makes me feel more at peace.

    Any which way it is, I'm glad you are in a better place now.

    Am thinking of you!
