I should be folding this pile of laundry and then going to bed. Are those the same clothes in that pile that I've washed, folded, and put away a gajillion times?
I've been a bit grumpy lately. The crying, the whining, the poopy diapers, the micro-naps, the laundry, the I-can't-get-to-anything-because-Jackson-keeps-sticking-his-hands-in-the-toilet, and the cleaning... oh the cleaning.
I haven't been blogging much partly because of my grumpiness and partly because I got Acacia this new movie, The Letter Factory, by Leap Frog and I've been letting her watch it on what was once my computer. It's worth it, though. Great movie; I highly recommend it. She can tell you what every letter is and what sound it makes.
I did manage to squeeze in some DESPERATE time with God the other evening and you know what... sometimes He's just waiting to give us the boost we need. I'm trying to work my way through the Psalms and I just *happened* to come across this awesome verse when I needed to hear it the most:
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens.
I guess I just needed a little perspective, a gentle reminder of His love, an encouraging word, and maybe even a "check yourself, honey". This IS the day that the Lord has made... I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!
