I have been struggling the past couple days. My attitude was completely out of whack over a situation I had absolutely NO control over. For whatever reason, I had my feathers COMPLETELY ruffled. That is really out of character for me, and I really do not like the way it makes me feel...
So, I have decided that tomorrow is a new day. A new attitude. I am determined not to let anyone or anything ruffle my feathers. I am going to be the "good ol' me" again. After all, I don't have it as bad as some people.
I am fortunate enough to have a loving caring family that understands that Mommy is indeed human. My husband is supportive and went with me to find new shoes. He actually shopped for shoes with me. He didn't just sit there and wait - he was looking too. For that I am thankful. Love you babe. :)
I am also fortunate enough to be able to afford to get my new shoes. There will be children who come to me this week that come from families that are financially unable to get many new things for them. I need to remember how God has blessed my family. Often, we take all we have for granted. I needed to step back and remember that today.
This weekend was busy and it was good. It reminded me how lucky I am each day. I enjoyed being with my family as we bustled around getting ready to go back to school. It is funny how close we can be when we are so busy. I pray that as we end the chapter that was summer 2011 we begin the next chapter in our lives with lots of love, laughter, and success.
