This morning, I danced around the living room with my children. Even my 13-year-old daughter humored me and let me spin her around like I did when she was 3.
Last week I was not a joyful, fun momma. I was stressed, and I had headaches, and I was grumpy and short-tempered.
This week is much better. We are back to normal. Aren’t you glad life is like that? Each morning is a fresh start. Yesterday may have been awful; last week may have been horrible; but today is a brand-new beginning.
Today I can choose to laugh and dance. I can choose to give piggyback rides around the living room and relish in my children’s giggles.
Today I can be silly with my children. I can choose to savor their child-likeness rather than be annoyed by their childishness.
Today I can make time for fun and play. I can soak in the sweetness of the children God has blessed me with.
Today we can appreciate that we do not often know loneliness in this family.
Today my cup overflows with the blessings of these six children.
These are the children God has given me. God has been good to me . . . -Genesis 33:5
How is your cup overflowing today? How are you celebrating the new mercies of this day?
