Is Hard Normal or is Good?

I had a wonderful prayer time this morning.

I was inside (it's freeze degrees outside), sitting next to my happy light, and my coffee in hand. I just felt so blessed. As I thanked God for the week I realized what a special week it had been.

We got our school work done happily and with no bad attitudes. I didn't yell. We met up with several friends this week which is always nice. We went on walks and had sunny days despite the cold weather. 

It was a wonderful week. 

Would I have noticed the beauty of this week if I hadn't been having seasonal depression, no motivation, and general angst with life? Would I have thanked God for such a joyful week if I hadn't been feeling such a lack of joy and peace lately? Would I have said
"yes" to so many meet ups with friends if I hadn't been feeling lonely and isolated?

I think sometimes we see the hard days or hard moments as imposters to our "perfect" lives. I think the hard day or moments are normal life and when we have those days were most everything goes right, well that's an unsual day.

This life is hard but it's beautiful and I think it's so important to count the small victories, rejoice in a good day, or week, or moment. Look for the beauty for it's all around you. Just take a moment to acknowlege all your blessing. Even in the hardest time there is always something to be thankful for.

Much love,
