Yesterday I got my haircut. I had canceled in December and finally rescheduled – so needed! I made a new appointment so the same atrocity wouldn’t happen. When she gave me the card for two months out, I happily noted it was the day after tax season ended! Only two months to go!
And then I immediately switched to blech. Two whole months to go…. We’re still at the beginning.
I woke up this morning to Bea racing into the room, hooting like an owl. Goodmorninggoodmorninggoodmorning!!!! Elle crunched up and gave me a big smile. I yawned and said, Go find daddy.
He’s already at work! I slowly got out of bed, and while I was getting Bea’s breakfast, she sat down and said, Mom! Can you be my friend? Just be happy!
It immediately reset my attitude. Today is a new morning. No tiredness or grumpiness or disappointments from yesterday allowed. I had the choice to respond with a fresh page or with the attitude of doing this thing alone.
So I hugged my daughter, finished making her oatmeal, and we started fresh again, 20 minutes after we woke up.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
