Ever had one of those days?
How about several in a row?
Yeah, me too.
Yesterday was one of those days. Instead of complaining* about it to you (like you want to hear me whining) I’ll share this video that helped me to keep the day in perspective.
STOP! If you don’t want to read my complaints. ☺
* The major headache was having no water for most of the day. Laundry and dishes are definitely backed up now!
* Worried about Mr. FR who was up at 1 am baling hay and worked all day – just like his brothers did – on only a couple of hours sleep.
* Hated to mention to Mr. FR about the water. Waited several hours before calling him.
*Grateful to have a handy-man husband (and brothers-in-law) who had it fixed before the end of the day.
*Minor Headaches included: having to drive children to the bunk house to use the facilities (water was out remember?), covering the garden because it supposed to freeze (what?!), going without a shower (wanna smell?), kids going without baths (wanna smell again?), finished reading my stack of library books (now what am I going to read?).
♥Good things I remembered to remember:
♥ Silly girls who definitely inherited their father’s sense of humor (Look at all the baler droppings!)
♥ A son who will sing the theme song to “Savage Sam” one minute and “All We Like Sheep” from Handel’s Messiah the next.
♥ My wonderful, hard working Mr. FR
♥ Crocheted a baby boy hat since I couldn’t do laundry or dishes
♥ A mug of hot chocolate – it’s still chilly at night!
♥ Elder Holland’s words of encouragement “Some blessings come soon, some late and some don’t come until heaven… But for those who embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ they come…”
Here’s to a different – and cheer filled – day!
