Needless to say, once I had manifested it I changed my mind. Thankfully my husband was right there to offer some extra care. These are the moments my husband really shines.
He cooked all morning to make me some homemade chicken noodle soup. It was amazing! And just a serving or two already had me feeling ten times better.
Later he made croque-monsieur for an extra delicious dinner. He went out and bought my favorite, fresh basil and mozzarella and made it into a cute kabob with tomatoes. It wasn't just the extra effort, it was the extra mile!
Today I am back to health but I can tell my "cup" is still refilling. Even as I take time to care for myself and get my own cup full again, I can't help but think "where can I go the extra mile?"
One of those places is here. Often I sit down and rush through a blog based on my day and the gratitude I find. But once this blog was a little deeper and farther reaching.
Somedays I wonder if this blog still reaches the audience that needs to hear it. I wonder if this is worth my daily effort or if I should let it go and go back to journaling my gratitude in private. Where can I go that extra mile in my life to bring joy and gratitude to people? Is it here? Is there a new calling waiting to be heard?
I do not have the answers yet. But I am open to the questions. I am opening myself to where I can go the extra mile to make a difference. I am opening to where I can go the extra mile to care for myself and my family. I am open to the answers.
I'm grateful for my husband's loving care. I'm grateful for him going the extra mile to make food to help me back to health. I'm grateful for whoever first found basil...yum! I'm grateful to be bringing myself back to health and focusing on manifesting more positive things. I'm grateful to open myself to possibilities of a pivot coming. I'm grateful to ask myself these questions and focus on making a difference. I'm grateful for my amazing kids and family that give me ways to help and grow each day.
What is the extra mile for you? Who takes the time to give you a boost? What are you manifesting?
May we take the time to ask the important questions. May we never be afraid to pivot to something new. May we take care of ourselves and those who need us with balance. Have a beautiful day!
