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…
