Today I came home from school frustrated by the parking lot madness, homework, and rude people. I plopped down at the computer and opened up Facebook. I have this app called "What God wants you to know" and it has a new message for me every day. (If you're on Facebook you should consider getting it!) Anyway, I opened it up and this is what it said:

On this day of your life, God wants you to know: You may think you have challenges, but you have so many blessings. Sometimes it takes only a moment of conscious effort to recognize those blessings. Once you focus on the gifts instead of the problems, your whole perspective will change and you will see blessings everywhere.

Even though this paragraph was obviously not straight from God, he used it to teach me that I don't need to let little problems or annoyances get to me, because he has blessed me with so much. The Lesson I learned from this? See the blessing in everything.
On this day of your life, Maisy, we believe God wants you to know ... that you are blessed.
