Cry me a River

So, I am having one of those down-in-the-dumps-eat-a-lot-of-trail-mix-kind of days. I know, I am feeling sorry for myself and it's pathetic. How old am I again? Don't answer that.

But seriously, March....you have begun on a bad note. The minute school started today I was annoyed. Don't get me wrong, I love my students but there are days when I would rather be in Hawaii, sipping my blue drink with an umbrella in it rather than trying to cram grammar rules down their throats. I won't go into all the details of why today has been annoying, so let's just say it has not been my day by any means.

When I picked up Alina up from school today, my day did brighten up. Of course, getting her at noon puts a smile on my face anyway...but then as I put her in the car, who shows up? Joshua. He decided to come home for lunch, and swing by first to see if we were still at her school and we were. It was a much needed, happy surprise. Then he came home to eat lunch with us, and watch some Madagascar 2 for the zillionth time.

Compared to many, I have no right to even breathe the words "bad day." So, whenever I am down in the dumps, and feel the urge to eat all the Oreos in the cupboard, I have to remind myself that God is SO good to me. He brings me blessings when I don't ask for them, and loves me even when I am a grouch. Why is this so hard to remember sometimes?
