{once again}

it has been a long Monday here. Why are Mondays that way sometimes? Honestly, I've had a {quite} yucky attitude. I feel stressed, worried, frustrated, tired. And I remember oh, yes...time to continue listing my graciously given {though not always graciously received} gifts. Let's see if we {make that He} can turn my frown upside down:

  • {20} Marker-drawn beards on little faces, even her's.
  • {21} Little baby with a toe in her mouth.
  • {22} Oldest coming in just to say he loves me, then hug baby sister.
  • {23} Sweet smelling jasmine blooming.
  • {24} The littlest figuring out how to eat {and enjoy} a cracker, smiling with pride.
  • {25} Unexpectedly coming across a card Dad gave me years and years ago signed, 

  • {26} Knowing I'll see him again One Day.
  • {27} The cup wasn't taken away and He has overcome! 
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”  {Matthew 26:39}
Now I'm smiling. See what others are smiling about.
