Can I try this again??

Today started off just fine. Woke up... fed the girls breakfast... the roof guy came to check out the hail damage (really nice guy!)... sent Hubs off to work... then it started. My kids went crazy. I mean they were misbehaving and disobeying and doing things they know not to do. IT LASTED ALL DAY! And I have to admit, I let it get to me today. I try not to do that, but I've just been too tired lately and my mind isn't where it should be. Naptime was very short and it was just a rough day.

Don't get me wrong... I am in no way complaining about my children. I know that kids aren't perfect all the time. I know that Moms aren't either! I love my kids more than I could ever express and they mean the world to me. But they are human too, and we ALL have bad days from time to time. Even though it was a hard day, I took every chance I got to snuggle up and love on my girls. We laughed and played. But at the end of a day like this it is the struggles that stand out. I did feel God's mercy many times today! And I will go to bed tonight knowing that I will be better tomorrow. We will be better tomorrow!

We've also got some things going on that we are trying to figure out and stay positive through. So I've been praying and thinking and planning... just trying to make things the best they can be! I somehow managed to get the dishes done today and make dinner, although thinking about it now I have no idea how I did that!

On a positive note, I'm starting to feel better (YAY!). I also started a little project for myself... maybe it will be something I finish, maybe not. As I was praying with the girls tonight we took some time to pray that we will have a better day tomorrow.... I sure hope so. I think we could all use a good day!

I'm sorry it was a rough day. Praying your tomorrow will be better and that you will find clarity in whatever decisions you have to make.

Glad you're feeling better!

Love you!
