How to Get Through A Bad Day

How to Get through a bad day

It was one of those days. I wasn’t sure how to get through a bad day – that was this bad.

“I don’t want to leave the house.  I don’t want to put my shoes on.  I can’t get dressed.  I don’t want to get in the car. I can’t buckle myself in.  I don’t want music.  I do want music. Mommy, I am hungry.  I am not hungry. I am thirsty.  I am not thirsty.”    

We make it to the car – a small victory!

“Mommy, don’t sing. I don’t like music. I want my window down. I don’t want the wind to hit me.”

Finally, our car pulls into our destination – a huge victory!

Goliath may have been strong and mighty, but all I know is that I felt like David as I walked onto that soccer field. I defeated my giant.  I arrived.  I did it!

A sense of relief washes over me.  I was ready for my time of solace.  My time to sit down and cheer on my adorable boy from afar.  I can be still.  I can sip a drink. I can think. I can recuperate.  I can “be”.I give him a little push in the direction of the field, and say, “Have fun, Mommy can’t wait to cheer you on.”If only the story ended here.  Because if it did, I could wrap it up with a bow and say, “persevere my sister, all will get better – just obey, be loving and trust God.”
Find out  how I survived they day that almost knocked me down and how God encouraged my weary soul!  
God is faithful to reveal to us how to get through a bad day!
