When I read today's prompt, this scripture came to mind. I would guess it was because yesterday I was really having a hard time with my calling. I struggled to see the beauty in my life.

Isn't He amazing to give me exactly the thing I needed right when I needed it.
Proverbs reminds me that my life is not my own, and that two little girls are depending me for this season of their life.
