Ever wonder why some days work out like they do? Why, when you have so much to do, LIFE happens? Like the day your husband has to work, your little one gets sick and you have lots on your agenda for the day…
This morning started off promising to be a busy day. We were going to church this morning, off to Walmart to pick up sand paper for Awana and a present for a 40th surprise party this afternoon, then home to eat lunch, back to the party, on to Awana and I was excited about doing Council Time tonight as well.
Being home all day, not able to go anywhere, made me really ponder why I get so stressed when my plans are disrupted. Isn’t my favorite job being a Mommy to my little ones and a wife to my husband? Part of that includes cleaning up bodily fluids and missing out on things when they are sick. Just part of the job. So instead of stressing, I made a few phone calls (thanks Regena, Jonathan, Ryan, Kristin and Donnie)and got everything settled for the night at Awana and then just spent the day enjoying my little ones. I got to take a nap snuggled up with my little Ellie and take care of my sick little man, without stressing over what I was missing.
Lord, I’m thankful for the opportunity to clean up messes I’d rather not clean up. It means I have a family to love.
Until next time,
