Today I got up early and had breakfast with one of my friends. We had a nice breakfast and talked about nothing in particular.
After that I got my hair cut by another one of my friends. I talked to him and his wife, who works with him. We've been good friends for a long time so the conversation was easy and good.
On the way home I called my son and talked to him about last night's football game. Texted my daughter just to say 'hi'.
When I got home a did some laundry, cleaned my bathroom, raked some leaves, and generally putzed around while waiting for the chimney sweep to show up so I could go to Costco to fill my stomach on free samples and buy a few goodies while I was at it.
Later I went to a little wedding at my church. Took in the festivities, ate some cake, drank some punch and came home.
All in all it wasn't an exciting day, but it was a full one.
So why am I writing this? I thought you might ask. It's because today was an average Saturday in my life. Okay, so the wedding was a little out of the ordinary, but still it made me realize that I truly am a man who has been blessed. I have friends to talk to. To engage with. They're healthy, wonderful people. My kids have healthy smiles positioned in their hearts. I have a comfortable place to call my own...(With a clean chimney!) to call home. While I do believe there is room in life for lamenting...after all there's a whole book in the Bible full of such groanings, I've decided that there are days where simply is no room for it at all. Today was one of those days.
