I didn't like the idea of having to do chores around the house, which included everything from laundry to cleaning the fish tank.
I'm not sure why I felt frustrated at having to be the one who does most of the cleaning up around the house. It doesn't happen too often, thank goodness. I don't like to have a pity party about such things. I don't even want to be in my own skin when I get so cranky.
I decided the best thing to do was turn it around and be THANKFUL for my situation.
- Thank goodness I have a home and a family to take care of! There are so many in the world who live alone and are so terribly lonely.
- My favorite plant was broken today. A number of pieces were broken off by a ball that someone accidentally hit it with. I was sad about it. The good part is this - I have a beautiful child who lives with ME. I'm thankful for her.
- Jadyn and I decided to eat pizza for lunch today. I opened the freezer and my preferred kind wasn't there. There was only 1 pizza left for us. WHERE were all of the pizzas that it seems I just bought? -- I'm thankful for the hungry young man who is our son. Before I can blink, he'll be living on his own and I won't need to buy so much pizza.
- Jadyn asked me to come to her tea party this morning. It was in the middle of my really cranky mood. While I really just wished I could have my space, I went to her tea party. I'm thankful for my little girl who loves to have tea parties a couple of times a week. Some day she won't want to do this anymore. She won't even prefer me at her parties. LOL.
- Thankful for a smile...
Last week, I shared some items from our newspaper. What kids want to be when they grow up. There were more in today's paper. I can't resist sharing just one more of them. It made me smile.
Here it is: Mary said- I want to be a doctor. I'll need a "shot-er", a stethoscope, heart beat thinger, knee tapper, some toys, and potty pads in case they go potty.
How on earth did her teacher keep a straight face? Maybe she didn't. :)
Thanks for reading, friends. Blessings to you today.
