What a strange day it has been....
I have felt such a wide range of emotions today. It doesn't even seem like it can all fit into one day. It feels more like a strange week. But I'm pretty sure everything took place within one twelve hour period. Although today was weird, I will take a few mental notes I gathered throughout the day.
Mental Note #1 - Mommas are wonderful. They should not be taken for granted. They like suprises. But next time when pondering what the suprise should be, think. Example: If your mom just told you she is working on her blood pressure (starting a new diet, taking new medicines, things like that...), take flowers instead of a breakfast that consists of 3000 calories.
Mental Note #2 - When you feel like a bad mood is coming on, don't drag it out just because you are a girl. Or because your hormones are nuts. Or just because you can. You don't know what the rest of the day will hold. And maybe, JUST MAYBE, you and your crabby attitude is the last thing someone else needs in their day.
Mental Note #3 - NEVER under estimate the joy a four year old can bring you. As if the eyes and the smile aren't enough, they always end up saying the one thing that seems to get through and melt your heart.
Mental Note #4 - Be a friend. Be a friend to your mom, your dad, your sister, your brother, your cousin, your spouse, your neighbor. And while you are being a friend, remember a friend loves at ALL times.
Mental Note #5 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean NOT on your own understanding. In ALL your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.
