I really didn't know what to title this post. Here are some ideas I had: "Bludgeoned" - "Hung out to Dry" - "Ripped" - "I'd rather have a sharp stick in the eye." Those all seemed a little extreme - even for the day I had - so I decided to ask a simple question: "Have you ever had a day...." A day where you just feel attacked? A day where everything is heavy on your shoulders? A day where things just keep coming at you?
I was feeling like it was all of the above by 9 am this morning. I will purposely leave out the details in order to protect all who were involved in traumatizing my day (although I'd rather rat them out). But the grace shown me (by a loving God) requires that I extend the same kind of grace to those who are not as loving.
So where is all this going? I guess I just wanted you to know that I, too, have bad days. But I have an awesome sister-in-law who listened to my woes and cheered me up with lots of laughs (thanks Bonnie!) and the following video gave me a great laugh! (thanks Amy!)
You have to take 4 minutes out of your day to watch this video. It is so funny and EVERY single parent on the planet will identify!
