OG Ornery Guts

When I was a kid every morning when my Daddy would wake me up...I guess I was pretty ornery, and he would say to me each day "I'm going to be happy today!" He would then tell me to say it with him! I honestly didn't like to be told that every morning! I also remember my Momma calling me "OG ornery  guts", after really pushing her about not wanting to practice my piano...since then, I've been teased many times, (in a loving manner by my siblings) by being an "OG ornery guts"!   When I ask my Dad about how I was when I was a kid growing up, he said that I was mischievous,  always getting into trouble, and strong willed. He also said my sister Bonnie watched how I acted, and did the opposite! Well, I guess you learn from the best! (insert laugh here)
In a few hours I go in for my MRI...  I've been thinking a lot the last few days about being happy with what you have, in front of you. It took me years and years to grow out of being ornery in the mornings, and not having a good disposition. I can honestly say that now I wake up each day happy...not because my Daddy told me to be,(although it was ingrained in me)  but because I chose to be. Right now is a new day before me, and I choose to be happy today, no matter what the outcome is, no matter what the results come back as...I will be happy, because I can be...goodbye OG ornery guts forever!

Wishing you good news! I just spoke in church about making choices and how it affects our life. I wish I could have quoted about your choice to be happy every morning. You are a great example.

Love ya!

Sarah, I hope you are doing well. I think your strong will was a gift from Heavenly Father. He knew you'd need it as a strength to persevere with a good attitude. You're amazing Sarah - taking it one day at a time and look at how far you've come! Truly an inspiration to all of us.
