And Blessed

I am feeling very grateful today. As I was driving to Ogden this morning there was an accident on 89. This seems to be the case more often then not and results in my tardiness at least every other day. (trust me teachers don't buy the same excuse that often!) I was frustrated and staring blankly at the car ahead of me which was occupied by another young guy, probably in the same situation as I was. He reached down, turned his volume dial up, and suddenly started jamming out! Just all by himself, in the middle of bumper-to-bumper traffic. Haha it definitely made the wait much more enjoyable... I couldn't help myself from Laughing Out Loud. He seriously was mouthing every single word, bobbing his head, fist pumpin, he had a pretty solid routine for the remaining 13 minutes it took to pass the GIANT Fed-Ex truck that occupied the entire width of the highway? It was just a nice reminder that my situation wasn't really THAT bad. It also provided time for me to feel grateful. It was a beautiful morning, no matter how early that 7:00 a.m. appeared nobody could deny how lovely the rays of the sun were coming up over our Wasatch Mountains. I don't know if anyone had a chance to see the moon last night but it was oh so very full. With the moon on one side of the horizon and the sun coming up on the other, it was the perfect scene. Apparently a good attitude comes with an extra boost of energy, because although I was late I was able to stay AWAKE for the ENTIRE span of my CHF class which is a very, very, very rare occasion. Also some other good news, I passed 3 out of the 4 sections of my praxis test! If I would have known these were my results before I took the test, I would have been disappointed. BUT after completing the test and feeling like I knew nothing, I was pretty satisfied with my score. (I know you've watched "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader," this stuff is tricky okay!) I only have to retake a sub-test for the math section, which is at least one of the easier subjects to study for! Hey my glass was even more than half-full, right? The last item on my "apply for program" check-list is just to wait for my results from my interview... as each day goes by since that took place my confidence is regretfully shrinking. I remember our conversation from it and think, 'Did I really say that?' What was I thinking after I answered the interviewer about what books I had recently read, and asked her, "What books have you recently read?" But what can I do haha. Regardless, today is still a good day! My spring break is next week, so thats always a plus. I woke up this morning just like I have on so many others,






Imagine a huge check mark by each of these and really, you got it all. So don't take it for granted! 
As Travis Tritt would say, "It's a Great Day to Be Alive!"
