Yesterday. Wednesday. For my one friend Wednesday’s are worse than Mondays. Mine have their ups and downs.
It was just one of those days when I woke up with a thousand things going through my head that needed to be done. I rolled out of bed and started right in on one thing. As I walked through the house a hundred other things jumped to top priority and the first thousand things I planned to do went back down the list.
By 10:30 I was tense, stressed, frustrated, and ready to call it quits for the rest of my life; or at least until the kids are out of the house.
I knew that I would never make it through the day by continuing like that.
After starting my cd player I sat in the chair, put my head back, and just breathed as I listened to the words of the hymn Channels Only. I prayed, read a Psalm, and just breathed for a couple minutes.
Feeling refreshed and much more stable emotionally, I was ready to get back to work. After I read 2 books to the kids I did just that.
