What can I say about today besides the fact that it was the opposite of most of the last 15 days. My people were tired and grumpy and attitude and YUCK! And thank you GOD that the last 15 days have not been like today. You know, some days are like that, even in Australia. I always loved that book, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. And the movie, now that was a good one. If you haven’t seen it, I won’t spoil it, but just imagine everything that could go wrong in life, multiply it by 1,000 and then slap a smiley face on it. This movie is laugh out loud funny, and I definitely recommend it, especially now while we are all at home. We could all use a good laugh.
This morning, Logan got to zoom with his teacher and classmates. While I fully intended to leave the room and give him space, I couldn’t help sitting and watching. This is like the cutest group of 2nd graders in the whole world. My heart was happy and a bit sad at the same time. I was so happy to see them all and hear their cute little stories, share their crafts, and even their pets. And as much as I love having my kids home with me(well not today so much) it broke my heart a little that they are all so little and our world is going through this big thing. But it is also totally cool to think of what amazing things are going to come out of this crazy time in our lives that they are going to bear witness to.
My highlight of the day was definitely the sunshine. It was cold outside, but oh that sunshine on my face as I did my laps around the block felt glorious today.
The best part about days like today is that they eventually end. We say our prayers, read our stories, get some snuggles… Sometimes that is just what we need, to be able to call it a day. It remind me of the scripture from Lamentations 3:21-24… But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
Indeed His mercies are new every morning.
