It was an overcast day and sprinkling rain on and off. I felt miserable. I wanted to sleep, yet had just awakened from an early afternoon nap. We had planned for a week to go out of town to get away for the weekend. The trip had been postponed. It was disappointing.

My husband woke up energetic and had a pep in his step; keeping himself busy with this and with that. He decided to bake a cake. ”Ugh,” I thought, “I’m going to have to show him which beaters go in the mixer, there are three sets. Then I’m going to have to show him how to use it.”

Then the thought occurred to me, “You can choose to sit and be sorry for yourself or choose to get up and do something. You can choose to change your attitude from declining to thriving. I could choose to be mad at him for being cheerful on an uncheerfull day or I could join in the celebration of enjoying the day.

I had just finished reading the book by Joyce Meyer, “Enjoying Where You Are On The Way To Where You Are Going.” So I decided to do something I enjoy doing, “Writing.”

On a rainy, not so cheerful day, I hope you can find hope and something to cheer you and as Joyce Meyer said, “Enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going.”

(By the way, the yellow cake with chocolate icing was delicious.)
