It only took me four days to miss a day! Classic. I did realize I'd forgotten to post yesterday at about 10:20 pm, as I was settling down in my bed to start reading a new book ("My Sisters the Saints" by Colleen Carroll Campbell, if you must know). Tired and a little cranky, I let the bought pass and started reading.
When I awoke this morning I realized what is was in grateful for today that I didn't realize yesterday: closed doors. I live with three small boys, so I'm not talking literal closed doors, although I am grateful when someone remembers to close the bathroom door so the baby doesn't splash in the toilet!
What I really mean is when God closes a door that I'd thought I wanted open. My spouse lost his job last month, and almost immediately I was grateful because I know we wouldn't have chosen to leave a situation that was OK. We knew it was a blessing and that God had better things in store for us. Last night I was cranky because a house I was interested in starting our "new" life in sold before we got a chance to look at it. But his morning I realized that it wasn't the house for us, and now we can and must move on.
