6 weeks has passed since my last post. A lot of good has happened to/for me and the boys peppered with some not so good days.
Today, despite the winter rain and gray skies we are having in the desert, I’m having a great morning. I got woken up by instant messenger just before my alarm. Normally that would make me crabby but when I got done talking with the friend and the alarm went off, I was already wide awake.
I found little j in the kitchen already making his breakfast. J woke up without complaining and I didn’t have to yell even once to get him moving. Plus, he’d slept in his bed all night.
Little j then said he was going to make his brother’s oatmeal for me so that I could have more time to start on lunches.
In the meantime, another friend started messaging me and put a smile on my face for the day.
Both boys and myself were ready a few minutes early which made getting through the rainy day drop off lines easier.
Getting to work early meant I didn’t have to rush my devotional time while eating my breakfast.
In this moment, I’m grateful for a peaceful rainy day.
