Mama Said, “There Would Be Days Like This!!!”


Have you every had one of those days? Well, yesterday was one of those days for me. You know one of those days that nothing goes as planned. One of those days that is supposed to be simple and easy but ends up turning into the day from “H-E-Double Hockey Sticks.” One of those days that you arrive 45 minutes late to an important meeting because someone gave you the wrong address, you get an email from your child’s teacher with a concern, and your spouse forgets to do EVERYTHING he/she said they were going to do.  Did I mention that it rained all day and I forgot my umbrella at home.  Ugh 😦

Yup!!! I had one of those days.

But you know what, God never ceases to amaze me. And for that and so much more, I’m forever grateful.

In the past, it would have been so easy for me to become upset, frustrated and irritated. However, I’m learning (slowly…very, very slowly) that I just have to go with the flow and keep pressing. When I change my focus from the problem to the possibility, I realize how amazingly blessed I am. I’m blessed because I have an amazing career, incredible children and a forgetful spouse that would go to the end of the earth for me. And although every day is not perfect, I serve a God who is!

So, the next time you have one of the days, look up, laugh and remember that Mama said, there would be days like this.” And enjoy every second, as you keep living abundantly!!!
