Somedays, a change of attitude is the trick to finding joy in the mundane for me. Laughing when something goes horrendously wrong. Practicing gratitude rather than resentment. Walking the walk of my faith, instead of just talking the talk.
And also just remembering that this day will never happen again. I only get one chance to make this day a good one. And it doesn't mean it has to be filled with kids who get along and obey everything I say, a perfectly clean house, and an exciting event to look forward to. It just means that every morning that I wake up, is a gift from God. I want to find joy in the chaos and in the quiet. I want my eyes to be open to all the little blessings in my day. I don't want to take anything for granted.
I've mentioned before that I hate laying down at night and regretting how I spent my time or energy. May today be spent wisely and with great thanksgiving.
