I looked in the mirror this morning and said to myself
“Well, this is my reality today.”
I was in the family room nursing Rachel and Avery came to snuggle up beside me (let's be honest here... I use the term “snuggle” loosely as it was more of a head butt for attention) and in the innocent perspective of a four year old she asked me why my tummy was still big. Huh. Um, I JUST had a baby??
Yup, it's been one of those days. How do you deal with “those” days? I let my preschooler trash the family room. I had an extra cup of coffee in the afternoon. I wore my pj's. All. Day. Long. It was a looooong day, but it was just what I said it was. My reality.
And now I'm sitting on the couch watching TV mindlessly with my husband. I've had a few “coulda, shoulda, woulda” moments. A few regrets, a few bright moments. But as I'm sitting here with my feet up, typing on my laptop sharing a bag of Nibs with my man I am reminded...
This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

That was funny. A nice comment following too. Blessingz to you
Your blog was perfect for me today! Brooklynn has been crying all afternoon and will not nap! I read your blog while she was crying in her crib.... your words were just what I needed to hear. So, if she doesn't want to nap today.... I will rejoice in the fact that she just wants to be held. Not sure what she is going through today, but I can put all the other things aside that I was planning on doing today.... and just hold her. : )
