I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning...I knew the heat index was going to be 110 and we're completely out of groceries. I hadn't meal planned yet, kids were fighting as usual and I wasn't sure where I was going to find the motivation or creativity to get the job done...
So I texted my husband, because I figured he should know how bad my day was going so far...It's kind of a trap I set for him...because he never gives the right answer, but I'm not even sure what answer I'm looking for. He said to put some worship music on and I decided to take his advice, so I got my cup of coffee, put on the music and started my list.
The morning quickly turned around, we had a few hiccups at the store...like Ben taking my debit card with him to work, so I had to quickly transfer money in the walmart parking lot, then after ringing up two weeks worth of groceries I realize my wallet is not with me, and then I remember it's sitting on the passenger seat of my unlocked car :/ Feeling like a crazy, I assured the lady I'd be right back. I grabbed my kids and pray the entire way that my wallet is still there. I couldn't really care less if the wallet was stolen...there wasn't any money and everything could be replaced but the thought of having to leave all my groceries that I planned and shopped for sitting there in the store was unbearable.
But thankfully it was there! I came back in the store dripping with sweat only to hear those magic words "I gotta go potty". I could have easily let these things stress me, and start snapping at the kids but I felt God's presence with me all morning and I'm so thankful for that.
I really need to start my mornings like this from now on. It's so good for me!
We've had a wonderful week though. Lots of sunshine, ice cream, yard work, a living room makeover and beach and pool days with friends. Here are a few of our instagrams..
