Around 745pm last night, I ran out my door to head to the gym. I was rushing to get to my favorite kickboxing class…the one that I rarely ever get to go to because of our crazy work schedules. My husband and I park tandem, so I just jumped in the car that was available, turned the key and zoomed off.

It took me about 2 blocks to realize I wasn’t listening to music, but to a voice, a very excited one with a slight country accent. A few seconds later, I figured out that I was listening to Zig Ziglar (the motivational speaker). My husband must have been listening to this before he got out of the car. I was going to turn it off but then for some reason decided to leave it on.
Ziglar told the story of a little girl, walking onto a plane and seeing the cockpit for the first time. At the sight of all the controls and electronics, she was in awe and gasped “Goshhhhhhhh!”

After the story, he posed a question to his audience asking when was their last GOSH moment. Then he challenged them by asking if they even realize their GOSH moments…

Got me thinking.

How many GOSH moments do I miss? How many GOSH moments do I take for granted? How many opportunities do I pass up that could create a GOSH moment for someone else?

A whole list of moments flashed in my brain. GOSH, my husband is amazing. He loves me, he is faithful, he is a helpful, loving father…and he is so handsome! GOSH, my mom is such a blessing to me and my family. She watches my boys for 2 days out of the week so I can continue to work. GOSH, I am healthy. I can get up, run around, workout or whatever I need to do!! GOSH, I have Jesus. I don’t know how I would get through each day without His love and guidance through His word. Those are just a few, but I could go on for quite a while.

Needless to say, my kickboxing workout that night was amazing. Every kick and punch had a little extra gratefulness on it…
Hopefully, you take a few seconds to think about and be thankful for the things that make you go “GOSH!”

Until next time,
