II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Perspective

To the natural eye...my day today could have been interpreted as horrible.

5:28 am -awken to massive throw up covering every surface in my newly decorated Pottery Barn bathroom. Spend the next 1 1/2 hours scrubbing, washing, and wiping.

7:00 am - do 5 loads of laundry and a load of dishes.

9:00 am- take my car into the dealership to have a few little tune ups and find out that the bill is $1,400 instead of $600!

10:00 am - change into my work out clothes, get out DVD, insert into player to realize that our flatscreen plasma TV in the living room isn't working anymore! GRRRRR...

11:00 am -spend an HOUR looking EVERYwhere for the STUPID tv manual only to give up and have to work out in the 3 foot space between our king sized bed and our little 19 inch tv in our master bedroom.

12:37 pm - Get ready to take Grant to school at 12:20 pm at which time he informs me he has just pooped his pants. Wait on him to take a dump and end up being late to school. Have to go inside school and take him to his class whilst wearing the clothes I wore to church the day before, slept in and still have on!!

3 pm - Take Brooklyn to doctor to see why she exploded brownie remains all over the bathroom and find out nothing other than that she has "an angry stomach." Get prescription filled for anti-diarrheal and anti-nausea meds and are told to bring her back in the morning if she is not better for C-Diff testing (infection of the colon).

4:26 pm - Finally regain ability to eat (had lost all appetite after the vomit clean up) and go to local resturant for dinner. Order a bowl of salad and soup and leave feeling like "Whats for DINNER?" (not one of us got enough food to get full off of!)

5:30 pm - Put away laundry for about an hour, RE-make the kids bed, enjoy a little "afternoon delight" while the kids watch a movie in the other room, then do my Ab Ripper X video before I sit down with a bowl of banana pudding and watch a movie.

OH what a day! Thankfully, while overwhelmed, I kept my perspective and was able to smile about it all despite the circumstances! It just goes to show..it's not what happens to you..it's how you deal with what happens to you!

Reminds me of the Phil Vassar song "Just Another Day in Paradise" - treasure it :)
