I’m so grateful for the moments I get to spend with my son everyday. Every moment we have together untouched by health issues, loss, sorrow, and so many other hardships too many face, is recognized. Appreciated, logged, memorized. I’m thankful for that today.
I heard something this weekend I desperately needed to hear. Everything isn’t perfect, and that’s okay. In fact things might be a lot worse than less-than-perfect for some. It could be their lowest low and its’ still completely okay. So for me, I can celebrate how close to perfect things really are. It’s not perfect, it may be hard, but it’s okay! That’s the story we all have to tell, a less than perfect one. I’m not alone in that.
1 Thess 5:18 | Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
So I choose to recognize these moments today, and rest in their less-than-perfectness. Be thankful for them. It’s hard but it could be worse, it could be harder. Someone is always struggling in a deeper way, and facing hardships I can’t event imagine. So no, things aren’t perfect, but really… they are.
