Today is a NEW DAY!

YESTERDAY...

- The baby spit-up on our dry-clean-only feather duvet.

- The toddler had three melt-downs during library story time.

- I got a $250 speeding ticket for going 34 in a 35 BUT it was school zone time making it 25.  I didn't see the flashing sign because I was helping the toddler in the back seat.

- Then I bawled like I haven't bawled for a long, long time.

- I spent all of nap time (2 hours) dealing with a horrible malware that was attacking my computer.  During this time, all I could think about were the pictures I would lose forever - and I cried.

- I got the computer up and running and through a chain of events was introduced to this program.  And every ounce of emotional energy I had left was cried out...again.  (I'm a glutton for punishment.)

- I tried to take pictures of the kids which ended when 1) the flash still wouldn't work and 2) the toddler bit the baby's finger.  (WHY?!!)

- Two women knocked on our door, I answered, and the first thing they said was "We are here to talk about the speed limit," and my heart jumped into my throat.  It was a petition for the speed on our little county road.  Good lands, I don't think they realized the horror I experienced!  "They hunted me down!!"  I thought.


BUT TODAY...

- I'm going to sniff my baby's neck.

- I'm going to ruffle my toddler's hair.

- We're going to read stories.

- We're going to pick flowers.

- We're going to make cookies.

- I'm going to be thankful that the word "grace" is found over 150 times in the scripture.

-  I'll meditate on 1 Peter 1:3-12 and thank God for my eternal inheritance - and that I suffer so little in comparison with the rest of the world.

- I will never drive anywhere again for the rest of my life.

- Until tomorrow.

Thank you, Erika! We're actually going to sell the cookies in a bake sale tomorrow to raise money for an orphanage in Liberia. So, I'll name a cookie in your honor and the proceeds will go to another good cause besides your tummy ;-)
