One of my dad’s constant admonitions as I was growing up was “Attitude is everything.”
As my girls return to school tomorrow morning after a week of spring break, I remember his advice and ask myself these questions.
Will I grumble because the alarm clock sounds at the early hour of 5:30 A.M, or will I be thankful that I have the health and strength to get out of bed?
Can I appreciate the fact that we have plenty of healthy food to fill lunchboxes or rush through packing lunches and never give it a thought?
Do I thank God once again that he chose to bless our family with children or rush them out the door so that I can have some quiet time?
Does the “umpteenth” load of laundry help me appreciate taking care of my family or cause me to resent my household chores?
Today I’m asking God to give me a proper perspective on the blessings I’ve been given along with the challenges I may face. As my attitude is right, I can encourage others and make my home sing.
How do you alter your attitude when it’s not what it should be?
