The Good in it All

I am going to admit something to you all.  Are you ready?

I had an excellent day today (well, yesterday by the time you read this).  We slept late-ish and had a relaxing Monday morning.  I had a chance to work out.  We got a lot of school work done, had an uneventful grocery store trip (meaning no one laid in the floor and screamed), and had lots of time outside on this beautiful day.  We played tag and “tickle monster at the bottom of the slide.” We ate lots of great food and got to go to church tonight for revival. We will all sleep well tonight.

And it has occurred to me that because my day was so stellar, I have nothing to write about.

I tend to avoid writing about good moments.  I can’t stand when someone posts as their Facebook status at 6:30 am: “Ran 5 miles, cleaned the kitchen, baked a dozen gluten dairy fat sugar free muffins, and sewed the dress I’m wearing to work today!”  If you are that person, you are no friend of mine.

I like to be truthful and real, not all “everything is perfect.” Because it’s not.

But that doesn’t make it not good.  There are really hard moments being me (and you, I’m sure), but there are some really great ones, too. And I just want to share them sometimes.

All the days of the afflicted are evil, but the cheerful of heart has a continual feast. Proverbs 15:5
