Today is one of those days. I should probably capitalize that; today is One of THOSE Days. You know: couldn't sleep, sick kids, lost the car keys, kid forgot their lunch, can't find uniform pants, then can't find belt to hold up sister's uniform pants, lost a contact, grouchy husband, no milk after pouring cereal, trash man came before the can was put out, belly grew overnight and now pants are too tight, can't find pants that fit, traffic issues, people waiting outside my door when I walk in the building, notice stain on shirt, take someone on errand and forget the most important part of the errand, lose keys to van at work.... And all this before 10 am.
So, here I sit with two options: I can cry, scream, sleep or simply leave; or I can suck it up and be thankful for the many, many blessings I have.
I'm going to choose gratitude. And breathe. And hopefully the day will improve. If not, I know Who I can lean on.
By the end of this day, He may be carrying me, but I'll make it!
