I am realizing how I wallow in self-pity when at least I do have a house to clean. I do have children to destroy my house. I do have furniture that I have to dust. I do have toys I have to pick up. Turning my futile, angry, ticked off thinking into a gratitude list sometimes helps the mood and attitude towards picking up...yet again. Prayer and gratitude can be very helpful for me in quickly changing a mood, but sometimes I just have to accept I am going to be grouchy and it isn't going to lift, but I still have to do my chores.
I can't even begin to state the reasons I love this little one. She is amazing in so many ways. Her top trait is compassion, it seeps out of her. She is kind and sensitive and loves bows and dolls and anything girly. Sometimes I wonder how she came from me, we are so very opposite, but she teaches me so much through her little life and soul. She is "raising" me well. :)
