Good to be Alive
Aren’t you glad you woke up this morning?
Have you ever been glad to have woken up?
Generally speaking, I usually have enough energy to drive home before falling asleep, but last night, for some reason, I knocked out on my friend’s couch at 9:30 PM and didn’t even regain consciousness until 4:15 AM today.
On the one hand, it was almost weird, having to say “I’ll text you later today” instead of “Bye, have a good night,” but on the other hand, I was just glad to be awake; when I woke up, my phone was already down to just 3%, and I’m pretty sure that had I not woken up right when I woke up, I could’ve arrived at the office much later than usual (and I haven’t been late in over two years).
All that to say, I’m just glad I woke up, or rather, that God seemingly woke me up on time.
This is greatly in contrast to my earlier post about struggling to wake up, but hey, I guess going back and using my gratitude journal this week has helped me even with that.
This morning, perhaps remember that life is a gift, and even though we may have burdens and responsibilities, we can still make the choice to be grateful for simply being alive.
God bless you, have a great day!
