One of those mornings..

Do you ever have one of those mornings?

When you want someone to take you away from everything?

I’ve had one of those mornings .

I woke up feeling vaguely annoyed. Hopped on the digital scales – and the resultant registered revolting weight made me even more annoyed.

My morning prayers seemed stilted and stale.

Checked email – lots to follow up re work and some hassles at work. Sigh.

Kids were noisy and noisy and noisy – did I say loud?

Looked at my To Do list and felt a sinking sensation – a slap. Too many things to do!

Spent awhile over a depressing, disinterested text from a relative.

Wrote a message for a bulletin board about choosing a spiritual director – I have that feeling of floundering in spiritual matters.
Got the kids started on activities – including a stubborn look from a teen, and some what to now and why from others…

Tried to choose a workout – what to choose, what’s the point, I’m not losing weight anyway….And so it went…

Well, you’ll be pleased to know that I worked out regardless. I did Taebo – and, yes, the endorphins kicked in and I liked the challenge. Billy Blanks reminded me, at the end of the workout, that “Every day above ground is a blessed day.”

Yep, even days that start off bad and result in a headache. 🙂

Off to take aspirin…and to pray a bit more before we clean up and make lunch and finish laundry and meet with the man from advertizing and go to work…

  1. Good for you for still working out! That’s awesome!We all have days like this, Leonie – I like the spiritual director idea…we’ve had great experiences with Opus Dei priests -they are wonderful and gentle confessors!Off to bed!

  2. …ah yes. Prayers here. Boy can I relate to the loud! A volume control for the dc would be very sanctifying 😉 Someone told me once that I should go on a retreat to be with God. I responded that it is easy for me to be with God when I’m by myself, I need help being with God amid the noise, the dishes, and the laundry!! Hugs from TX my friend!!!
