Ever have one of those days? You know the days..
baby is teething
break a glass
lose your keys
stub your toe
burn a meal- or worse dessert
paper cut your finger
stopped by a cop
kids are outta control
You know. One of those days?
It’s days like these cause me to reflect on the things that are blessings in my life.
Even the simple things like that our cloth diapers don’t cause rashes on Finley when we are here in California make me breathe easier.
Really, even if the entire list above happened on the same day (Praise God that is not my day today!) we’d still be better off than many families.
I stepped away from Facebook a couple of weeks ago and in that time a blogger that I had followed in the past lost her newborn son. This after losing twin boys (~halfway through pregnancy) not that long ago. That’s a day I don’t want to have.
My day, however, has been simply frustrating. Maybe it’s because I went grocery shopping with my posse (1 was being especially outlaw-ish) or that our family van is in the shop for a month because a teenage girl t-boned me or perhaps–and I’m thinking this is the real kicker in my day– it was the cop knocking on my window at a stop light telling me to pull over.
I’m pretty sure that 99.5% of people know why they are being pulled over. I was in the .5% that didn’t today.
Apparently, you aren’t allowed to use a cell phone on any road while driving in California. I had been told that only on the interstate was it prohibited.
The good news…I didn’t cry! At least not while he was there.
I did learn a lesson, well two. One, don’t talk on the phone while driving in California. Two, California police are not as nice as Texas police. No tomatoes please!! That’s just my experience. But, in their defense they have a lot more on their plate her in LA county than they do in my rural county in Texas.
After eating lunch and typing this all out I’m realizing that maybe I’m not having one of those days. All my kids are healthy, I got dressed today so I feel pretty and I just bought a bunch of groceries! That’s a lot to be grateful for!
If you are having a rough day I’d be happy to pray for you. Leave a comment, no details needed.
If you are having a cloth diaper (or any topic) problem that needs a solution, just ask and I’ll see if I have any advice.
This post has been so helpful for me! Thanks for listening.
