One of those days…

Today has been one of those days that weird and random things just happen. I have these days often, but this one had photo ops so I figured I’d share. First of all, it has been raining for what seems like forever. I think it actually started last night, but it’s been gloomy/sprinkle-y since Saturday so to me that equals forever. Any-who, today was supposed to be my big shopping day. The original plan was to go to town, do my grocery & Walgreen’s shopping, come home & unload, then head to coffee, then pick up kids from school. Since it was pouring, I decided to cut back on the grocery shopping a little and only go to one store, and wait until tomorrow to go to Walgreen’s. It started to let up, and was a light steady rain so I grabbed an umbrella and headed out the door. I unstrapped the umbrella, gave it a little shake, and pressed the button. As it began to open, the end flew off the handle, opened up and landed upside down in the rain. I stood there, shocked for a second, then snapped a picture.

After running through the rain to the truck to retrieve a different umbrella, Grayson and I headed to the store. When we got there, I realized I had forgotten the debit card, so I was very limited on what I could buy. We exited the truck holding the good umbrella, and somehow within 2 steps I sloshed water into my left shoe in turn drenching my pant leg.
So, now I am irritated about forgetting the debit card, ticked about my shoe, sock, and pants being soaked, and I get stopped by a sweet elderly man who feels the need to tell me a VERY long story about his childhood. I wasn’t in a hurry, and I didn’t mind talking to him at all…it actually put me in a better mood. Sometimes it is nice just to stop, take a breath, and listen. I like to think that God puts people like that in our path for a reason…whether it be to delay someone from being in an accident or just brighten a lonely person’s day. Often times, we let irritants pile up rather than let them go.
My unsolicited advice to my readers: When your day seems like total crap, force a smile, let out a giggle, take a deep breath, and thank God that you have crap days so you can appreciate the great ones.

One thought on “One of those days…

  1. While the tokens of affection from Kylie's admirer are ridiculously cute… I understand your hesitation at having to delve into this subject so soon. My boys are both practically still babies, but I worry about how quickly kids seem to grow up these days… I can't imagine my oldest "falling" for a girl in only a short five years! =(

    Good luck figuring out whether or not it's a good time to talk dating with your girls – it's a tough situation, for sure.
