I didn’t get enough sleep last night.
My house is a mess. Dirty carpet. Dirty dishes.
I’ve stepped in pee more times than I can count.
I just hit my elbow on a chair.
And the computer that I am trying to write from (and am supposed to be working from home on today) is not working. It’s gonna hit the dust soon and there’s no replacement coming soon.
My girls occupied themselves long enough to give me a semi break, but then I saw that Eva was writing on my new table.
So what am I going to do about it?
I’m going to think on what’s true. Pure. Real.
I am tired because I chose to stay up late. It’s no one’s fault but mine. My house is messy because my children are living life and making memories. I’d take the mess any day. There’s pee on the floor because my 2 year old is FINALLY trying to potty train and actually doing a great job and I am so proud of her! The chair I hit my elbow on is from a new dining set that I finally got after 5 years of wishing. I’m not used to it’s placement in the house yet. And the computer is one more computer than we had two months ago. I’m gonna get all the use out of while I can. And… I get to work from home… which is what I’ve always wanted.
If I could… I would freeze time. Right now. With my babies young making messes and yelling with joy. This is the good stuff right here.
Thinking on what’s true. Real. Pure.
Our minds cannot always be trusted. Our bodies want to complain. Our bodies are not made to remind us of the good. We… have to remind ourselves.
So I’m gonna go now. And do something useful with myself. And besides… this loaner computer just started playing some Kenny G jazz something or other and I really cannot stand another minute of it.
Today is a good day. Thank you, Lord.
