B Is For....

Bad Days!

Yep, you read that right. I am thankful for bad days. (or at least I am learning to be) This has been a rough week for me. I wanted to find a clever, nice thing to be thankful for, but every time I prayed about it, the words I got were Bad Day. I think the Lord wanted me to be real on this one! 

 Let me explain:

Imagine having an awful morning: Late alarm clock, burnt toast, spilled milk resulting in changing clothes only to realize that you forgot to switch laundry before you went to bed! 
Now, imagine that from a perspective of a mom who does not get to stay home with her kiddos! I cannot even imagine!!! 
***DISCLAIMER- if you are a working mom, you have my utmost respect! I am not sure how you accomplish all that you do in a single day! (especially you single mommas!)

My thankfulness this week comes from a very bad morning similar to the one above. The difference for me, I was able to switch the laundry, wait on it to dry, throw the burnt toast to the chickens, make a fresh piece, and the late alarm simply meant we started school about an hour later!  The Lord really used the day above to remind me to be thankful that I am home to reset those bad days. A few minutes cleaning up, a 5 minute mommy time-out to spend in prayer, and we were able to move on and have a very productive day filled with precious memories!  

How about you, friend? Are you thankful for the bad days too? 
What else are you thankful for this week?
