The Ugly

Sometimes I get tired of doing the same thing every morning.  Sometimes I am short with Davin and I do not appreciate his lack of helpfulness in the dressing process.  Sometimes, I get tired of pulling his arms to get his shirt on.  Sometimes I get tired of him coughing food on me during breakfast....again.  This morning was one of those times.  I wasn't feeling great and my patience was low.  By the time Davin had his coat on and was ready for school, he was looking at me with a look that said "mom, why are you mad at me?".  That got me.  I explained I wasn't mad at him, but would appreciate if he helped more. 

Tomorrow is a new day.  Same routine, but hopefully better attitude:-)  I am thankful for new days and truthfully, I am thankful for the same old routine.... most days;-)

And I am blessed to know I am not the only one who is occasionally frustrated. Isn't it wonderful that we are forgiven and given a fresh new start each day?

(Just had to check on Mom. She's sleeping in today...)
