Today started out a little rough.
I didn't get much sleep last night. Odd, I know. And then was abruptly woken up this morning by upset little boys who had dumped water on each other's beds. Why? Why?! That is the question I find myself asking Little M more and more these days.
Frustrating. And when I don't get to wake up on my own terms, I don't do well. So, when I heard my voice cracking during the "why?", I went around the corner and just slid into a puddle of tears. HH got up and came and took over. So, I tried to just pull it together and focus on getting ready for church.
We made it to church a little late, but not too bad.
Church went pretty well, but I really struggled to stay awake. Especially, during Sunday School. I finally had to pass a sleeping Darling A off to HH because I was afraid I was going to drop her. We had a really good lesson in Relief Society though--about truly worshipping on the Sabbath and being Joyful in the Sabbath. A good reminder and a Joyful Moment for me.
Plus, it was a Joyful Moment toting this little princess all over. This picture doesn't do this outfit justice. It is from HH's boss (his wife, really) and it is so elegant and pretty!
But then, we came home and I just kind of dissolved into a dark mess. HH took over (odd, I know) and I just collapsed into bed and slept for a while after a long battle with my demons. When I woke up, I knew it was time to just fake it until I got back on the road to happiness again. So, after a yummy and creative dinner made by my amazing HH, we took the kids for a walk to HH's boss's house. He lives not far from us and I knew they'd be happy to see how sweet Darling A looked in the outfit they gave her.
That visit was a Joyful Moment because I could tell how much they enjoyed seeing Darling A and interacting with the kids.
So, kind of a bizarre day emotionally, but I'm making it. I know there are better days to come.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and a pretty new outfit to go with them!
