I like the good days way more than the bad. Honestly, I’d like to pretend bad days don’t happen and shouldn’t happen. Boo. That’s unrealistic, right?
The world we live in is broken and in need of salvation… All creation is groaning, the Bible says. We see sickness hits plants, animals and people. One day, God will restore it all!
Onward to the original post! I had a good day today. I got stuff done and felt like emotionally I held it together. I imagined myself in a school of fish feeling fine, floating along… Not one of those days where a large fish is coming after me and I am frantic.
There’s something to be said about the good days of motherhood. When I have these good days I am reminded why I love being a wife and a mom.
- I’m appreciated.
- My husband says “thanks!”
- My children are patient with themselves, with me and with their sisters.
- Meals are made
- Foods are eaten
- Laundry is done
- Dishes are being cleaned
I just wanted to list a few.
I measure motherhood and the good days by the tasks completed but greater still, I want to measure them by the smiles, coos, laughter, & bravery I experienced either in the giving or receiving end.
Even in the challenges and the challenging days, I want to mark it with gratitude. I believe this is a noble goal for a wife and a mom.
How was your day? How did it go? What went well and what could be done differently? What is one thing to be thankful for?
