Today, I’ll be honest, was horrible. It started out good enough. I slept in until about 8:00, and went to the 9 am Mass. After that, I went to the library to get some movies. My mom told me that I might not be allowed to watch some of them. I was pretty tired, and that kind of got me annoyed. Then we had to go to a couple more stops, which further irritated me. When I finally got home, i locked myself up in my room and started to read a book. That’s when my mom told me I had to go to the pool (which I really didn’t want to do). After that she said, “you also have a dentist appointment Thursday, and you have to get a haircut this weekend (Gretclips always messes it up). Oh, and you have band rehearsal tonight”. It was like the 4 worst things in a row. I was very angry. Then my brother came into the room and said, “Why are you angry. Huh? Just tell me why you’re annoyed.” It lasted for like ten minutes. I finally escaped and ate lunch. When I came back upstairs, I was checking what time band was tonight, when I got a notification from wordpress. It was a post from The Honan Chapel Newsletter. It was a video from a father whose 5-year old daughter is battling cancer.
I realized that my life is pretty awesome. I have to go to the dentist and that means I have teeth to get checked out. I have to get a haircut and that means I’m not bald. I have to go to the pool which means I have a pool to go to. I have to go to marching band which means I’m healthy enough to do it (that’s saying a lot).
My life is great, just like most people’s. But sadly, most people don’t realize it because their heads are always down to their phones. Enjoy your life that God gave you, you only have one.
