Just one of those Days…

Posted on | December 5, 2011 | 4 Comments

I have started and stopped no fewer than four blog posts today.

Part of my problem is that I want to whine and complain yet I feel entirely too blessed to justify any of it.  I want to stomp my feet and rail about how my day was long and my clients were unhappy.  I want to sip my wine and bitch about how people don’t get how hard I work or how much it sucks to work all day and come home and work all over again until it’s time to get up and start the first job again.  I want to be a whiny sack of poo, honestly.  That’s just what I feel like being.

But when I sat down to write the whiny, irritable words, I felt a hand on my shoulder and a voice in my ear telling me “no.” Quite clearly, I heard a voice telling me that I am so very, very blessed with the little things that there is no need to dwell on what is unfinished or unsturdy.  I felt suddenly as though I were very much in the presence of something bigger than myself and that presence was telling me to quit my bitching.  Cause honestly? The God I believe in says stuff like that on the regular.

The only thing that kept ringing through my head was the sound of laughter; the sweet, sunny soprano sound of my child’s laughter.

I had a rough day.  I had a day that left me wanting several glasses of wine, a masseuse and a pool boy who speaks very, very, very little English.  But if at the end of these crappy days, I get to come home to the house I own with the little boy I love? Well, then Law Momma?

Quit your bitchin’.

    Bitching is allowed as long as we keep it in perspective, right?

    My daughter threw up 3 times last night, today wasn’t my best day either. But knowing I have a beautiful, smart daughter TO wake me up at 4AM hysterical and covered in last night’s dinner is something to be thankful for, right? 😉

    Law Mama, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of Dear Sugar, but Google her. She gives kick-butt advice and even though sometimes it doesn’t pertain to me it really gives me some perspective. And bonus for you….she is very encouraging to WRITERS….which you are! Check her out, she’s like a fairy godmother and Jimminy(?) Cricket rolled into one!

    Loves. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that being happy is a choice we can all make–thanks for the reminder to value what I do have instead of looking at what I lack.
