It was one of those days

I have been working in little bits for the last few weeks on organizing and redistributing all the stuff in the house. I feel very much like I am nesting although it is like what a year and a half later. Anyhoo, today was one of those days where I didn't feel like I got much accomplished at all because I spent the day corralling the children and holding Miss Zoe. I actually had a child say to me today "I don't have to if I don't want to." In case you are wondering - that child is still alive and he doesn't have a bruise on him : ) But, I don't think he will ever do that again! I waited until Jeff got home and then quietly slipped out for a little shopping therapy. Of course it was to Wally world and I really just needed cat food and diapers but just a little quiet time always refreshes my spirit. I was reminded again as I drove with my windows down, drinking my Dr. drink for everyones favorite drive through, listening to my choice of praise hymns, how truly blessed I am. Even if it was a rough day- I have kids who are healthy and mostly happy, I have a home to take care of, I have clothes to wash (too many), and I have a God who made a plan and it was fulfilled through His Son. "Love soo Amazing" I am thankful tonight that all are sleeping safe and sound in their beds and I am thankful that it was able to have "one of those days!" God Bless!

I know what you mean...some days are harder than others, but we are so blessed. I go out for some quiet/retail time almost once a keeps me sane and I am thankful my hubby goes on duty when he gets home so I can do it! Hope today is an easier one with the kids. :-)
