So today while at the gym with my sweet grandma, sister & daughter my car window was smashed in & my purse & my grandmas purse were stolen.
It's such a violating feeling & I so wish instead of being a good girl at TJ Maxx yesterday, I would have spent that $150 cash in my wallet 😉
They got my grandmas new iPhone 6 & her super cute quilted purse & matching wallet. My nice purse & cute new wallet too.
My initial feeling was to be angry. Angry that we didn't just take our purses in, angry for the inconvenience we have now dealing with canceling cards, getting new drivers licenses, calling clients to cancel checks, losing cute purses & cash, replacing broken windows, etc. etc. Angry that hard earned money was taken.
Instead I am choosing GRATITUDE. ❤ Grateful that the most precious cargo I had with me today (my grandma, my sister, my daughter) came home with me. Grateful that my car was still there & drivable so I have transportation to get to work tomorrow. Grateful my grandmas phone is insured & that she has an iPad to at least FaceTime us if she needs anything in the meantime. Grateful for the ability to make up for the cash that was taken. Grateful we know an awesome glass company to take care of my window. (Shout out to Valley Glass👍🏻) Grateful I'm not in a position that I feel the only way to get by is to steal from others. Grateful that all the things that were taken today are just things & totally replaceable. Grateful for good people like the sweet lady at the gym who said she'd specifically pray for me & my grandma. ❤
I have SO much to be grateful for! "Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions." Pema Chodron
I'm in no way perfect at this practice, but I'm practicing.
Happy Sunday sweet friends💕#gratitude
