Today happened, and that's okay.

Today the toilet broke.  I could tell you the details, but why would I do that to you if you care enough to read something I write?  But just so you know, today the toilet broke and that is okay.

There was a time, not so long ago, when I would have totally freaked out about this, but not today. Today is a good day.  It will stay a good day. Do you know why? Because I decided it would.  

Today, there was sun. Today, there was good music and pleasant conversation with a child. Today, there was an email from a friend.  Today, I woke up.  Lots of people on this earth didn't. And today, just like every other day, no matter what is happening to me or around me, God is good.

It is just a toilet, and all over the world there are people that don't have them. We have two!  I guess I should remember that when I don't want to clean them.  I should be glad we have them.  

We are blessed.  We decided to renew our home warranty. That means with a phone call, a fee, and an ambiguous appointment time, my little problem will be remedied.  I might even get to read a book while I wait.   Today, the toilet broke and it is a good day.

This is the day that the Lord has made;   let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24
