Some days you just don't feel it, do you? The Joy?
Whether it's fatigue, or hormones, or a headache that you just can't shift. Or the grey skies, or the ordinary creeping up on you. Or just wanting to wallow, and feel a bit sorry for yourself.
You wake up, on the wrong side of that big bed of life, with a frown that can't be turned upside down.
For me, today was one of those days.
I woke up feeling rotten, sure that this would be a morning when I'd be best avoided.
Got ready, and fretted and fussed over the face looking back at me in the mirror.
Ran through my 'to do' list in my head, as I always do, even on the days when there's little to worry about and no deadlines to keep.
Huffed and puffed, and sighed and sobbed,
And then I came downstairs.
To a breakfast made by my eight year old daughter. A little letter that read...
To the smiles (SMILES!) of my little man, who is feeling so much better.
To the cuddles, and cheeky grins of the smallest one.
And the grey skies cleared and the blue peeped through.
And the Mr, not knowing how I was feeling, sent me a lovely message on his way to work.
And a friend's post on Facebook made me smile.
And another, very new friend, paid me a kindness.
All the tiny things. So appreciated, but perhaps insignificant alone.
But put together today? On a not-so-great day?
Well, I truly believe in that Big Man 'upstairs'.
And today he's got my back.
