My kids were absolutely atrocious today.
Honestly. They were so bad that Will was actually sent to bed without dinner. At 6:00 PM.
I'm not joking folks, it was that bad. And it wasn't just one of them, it was both of them.
The part I'm grateful for? I was calm. And logical. And loving! I could tell that there was a greater power helping us out tonight because without it our house would have imploded. I'm so grateful that I could go to bed tonight knowing that, for once, we actually did everything right.
As a parent, I think you need to really celebrate those moments.
On a completely different note, I've been really grateful for this Gratitude Project. I know I didn't post pictures every day like I had planned, but that's just the way it is. It's not exactly convenient to carry a camera around with you every second of every day.
Plus if I were to start taking pictures in church I'm pretty sure I'd be ostracized from my community.
And we can't let that happen. I digress.
Each day I would start out thinking, 'I know exactly what it is I'm going to blog about today.' When the day wrapped up, it was almost never what I was expecting. It was always a great surprise and I found myself being more aware of my blessings. It has been a great experience and I hope to continue at least the state of mind in the future.
After all, I have a lot to be grateful for.
