Today I wanted rain and cooler temperatures. I got clouds and heat.
Today I wanted a peaceful morning. I got a broken freezer and all that comes with it.
Today I wanted to to feel full of health and energized. Instead I got nauseated once again from the antibiotic I am taking.
Today I wanted to feel love and show love to all my children. I got that for the most part with a few "you're the worst mom ever" or "you are ruining my life" when I asked them to help around the house.
Today I wanted to wake up and have my laundry magically completed and the house clean. I woke up with a strong body to clean the same messes and work.
Today I wanted to praise God and commune with Him. I got problems and complications to distract me from all the good that is around me.
Today I wanted to go to bed early. I am writing at 1 am so grateful for the chance to have lived today with all it's ups and down.
Today I was humbled by life, death, and everything in between.
Today people I love came to my rescue and helped me feel loved.
Today I listened and found the Lord moving me to finish somethings and start new ones.
Today was not what I anticipated. It was a beautiful day.
