This is the stuff that drives me crazy!

"This is the stuff" by Francesca Battistelli is one of my favorite songs.  Today has been one of those days.  Actually, the last week and half have been "one of those days". 

You see, today, while on the way home from picking Ella up from school, we got a flat tire.  It was just me and the kids.  I do not know how to change a flat tire. :(

And although I do not know how to change a flat tire, I am learning.  This was the 3rd flat tire we have changed in a little over a week!!!  Let me clarify by saying they were not all on the same vehicle.  (Last week we had one on the church van while we were driving.  Then 30 minutes later a friend called that also had a flat tire and needed help.) Today was my personal van. 

As soon as this happened, I thought of the song above.  There is a line in the song that says, "This is the stuff that drives me crazy, this is the stuff that's getting to me lately, in the middle of my little mess I forget how big I'm blessed." 

So, today I am choosing to see how I am blessed and not focusing on the little things that make me crazy. 

FYI, Eric had just arrived home and was able to get there and help me in less than 5 minutes.  We were able to get pulled over quickly and will be able to get the tire fixed.  A sweet lady pulled over to give us a bigger jack so it made the job much easier.  We were also able to invite her to church.  All blessings :)

Two of my biggest blessings!!

What are your blessings today??
