today

my house may not be clean.
my laundry may be piled knee (or thigh) high.
my kids may need to be bathed.
we may not be eating very healthy right now.
i may be terribly behind on work.
i may not have blogged in a few days.
my camera may be broken.
but today was a good day.
today my kids were happy.
my girls hardly fought all day.
i was able to snuggle my 2 youngest whenever they asked.
i was able to organize to my heart’s desire today in the playroom.
i only had to hear whining a fraction of the amount i usually do.
although there is much to be desired of the state of my home,
today it was made clear to me

i
am
blessed.

    Love your perspective. It definitely is about more than having a perfectly tidy house or having it "all together". Glad you had a great day!

    Schedules, to do lists, and a neat home are only temporary things. "Be still and know that I am God…" that is what matters. Enjoy His blessings. :)I need to remind myself of that as well. Thanks for the reminder.
