It's One of Those Days...

and just look at those eyelashes... don't they make all the troubles of the day disappear?

and it's not the kids. It's me.

You know those days - when you're just cranky - a little less patient than usual?

Well, that's me today.

I hate it when I feel this way. I know why, but only a woman could relate. Do you know?

Ian is down, and I'm letting the girls enjoy a little PBS Kids while I catch up on my favorite blogs.

I plan to spend a little extra time reading with the girls tonight to make up for all of my nasties of the day.

Do you think they'll forgive me? I do!

I asked them, "Was Mommy nice today or crabby?" They said, "Nice!" Oh, Good!

Children - they're so gracious. Just like our Heavenly Father.

God, fill me up! I need Your love and patience inside me. I'm struggling today. I'm tired and short, and I feel "done". I look forward to a new day tomorrow, and I'm thankful for my friend and neighbor, Deanna, who invited us over to swim tonight. That helped! I love You more than anything else, and I REALLY couldn't do life with You. Thank you for loving us when we're good, bad and ugly. Amen.


  1. The eyelashes are delicious! I can relate to feeling "done." Thanks for the encouragement.

  2. I'm glad that the swim helped that night!!! :)

  3. Now you know, your body was right. It needed to be cranky and grumpy, it didn't feel good. You're allowed these days, I hope, I have plenty of them. Hope you get to feeling 100% soon. Holler if you need a sanity break.-jen

  4. Totally! Now it makes sense...
