One of THOSE days!

Today is one of THOSE days. You know the kind of day where you spill your make-up on your pants, and your hair is impossible to tame, and you are running late, and there is a fruit fly buzzing around and around your face, and you have a pinched nerve in your neck and have a killer headache for the 3rd day in a row, and you run your stockings, and you wake up with quite possibly the stupidest song in existence running through your mind as if on repeat over and over, and you forget the address on the table at home, and you realize that you forgot to pay the power bill, and you step barefoot on the plug end of the cord on your hair dryer, and you see a picture of a really fun time had with friends and the only thing you can see is how much weight you have gained, and you don’t listen carefully enough while in a conversation with your boss and you say something totally stupid and out of left field and he looks at you like you come from another planet. Yep, today is one of those days.

As the tears ball up in my throat and threaten to spill I smile and laugh…almost out loud! This is life. This is MY life. God bless the fruit fly, and My Dead Dog Rover, and Thank you for the messy hair on my head, and the nasty nerve in my neck. Thank you for the power bill, and for the hair dryer, and especially for the friends, and the fun time…fat and all. Thank you for every blessed extra pound. Thank you Lord for my job, and my wonderful boss. Thank you Lord for this day…THIS specific day, foibles and all!    I choose to live it as fully as I can.  I welcome it all, even the tears.  J.
