On days like this my mood seems to mirror the outside, drippy and gray.
Breakfast with a good friend was an uplift and blessing. Instead of withdrawing when I feel down, which is my tendency, I need to be with a friend and be a friend.
I often start cleaning when I’m thinking hard, frustrated, or need to release pent-up energy. You should see my spotless kitchen. I guess that’s one of the perks of parenting teens!
Oh, and today I received the award “Strictest Parent Ever”. Thank you, thank you…I’d like to thank the little people who aren’t so little anymore for giving me the opportunity.
Hugs are good. I need some more. Where is that husband? I’m going to go get a hug or two right now.
I accidentally included a reimbursement check of ours in with my work deposit last night! Fortunately when I called the branch they said they found it. Oh my. What will I be like when I’m 70? Stick around – it should be entertaining!
I’ve always thought it would be kind of fun to work at Target. What do you think? Do you think the magic would wear off if I was there all the time? I don’t think that’s possible.
I’m using The Message version in my daily Bible reading plan this year and love it! I found this verse yesterday in Proverbs. I thought of writing it on a poster board and sticking it by the door: “Dear child, if you become wise, I’ll be one happy parent…” (Prov. 23:14-16) The verse before that one says “Don’t be afraid to correct your young ones, a spanking won’t kill them.”
As I drove to breakfast this morning I heard a beautiful song. The words made me cry. Please take a minute to listen to this:
Places where grace is, soon to be so amazing…
Oh Lord, let it be true. I’m counting on You.
