We are all recovering well from the Gabriel Plague of 2012, but are still eating simply due to lingering sensitivity in our GI systems.
I’ve managed to clean out the car seats and do most of the dirty laundry, plus clean the kitchen for the first time in a few days. I am hugely thankful for that! I’m scared to go look in the van though…that poor vehicle is going to need some lovin’ very soon after all it went through recently! Starting with an air freshener to cover the puke smell…
I don’t feel like being a Mom today. I don’t feel like eating toast and jello and bananas again all day. But I’m trying to say yes. Yes to this small not-bad-in-the-grand-scheme-of-things “for worse” period.
We all have to say “yes” again and again and again in our lives. To Christ, to motherhood, to marriage, to parenting, to our jobs, and to living in perspective.
So, I say “yes” to the Lord today.
To not being snappy with my kids or my husband. To making toast and jello faces on lunch plates for the kids. To not obsessing about the next time I get can away for some “me” time. To praising God for how blessed things are, considering how much worse they could be.
