Thankful Thursday

I haven't done a Thankful Thursday in awhile and thought it was about time!

Today I've been grouchy. Fussy with Christian and all over him about everything. Ticked at him that I took almost an hour planning a preschool activity and then he gave me an attitude about doing it. And it really would have been fun. I guess I can't blame him for not wanting to do an activity with ME today. I didn't get a good night's sleep last night because McKenna is cutting both of her top teeth, she's congested and was coughing all night. I even took her to the doctor because I was afraid the congestion was moving into her chest (it's not). So I haven't been a great mom today and I know I'm not ever going to be perfect but I still am disappointed in myself for my lack of patience, for my lack of self control with my words, for the lack of joy in my home today.

So it's time to regroup. And today I'm just simply thankful for the cross and the fact that I know exactly where I will spend eternity. And thank God that he loves me and will one day welcome me to the place he has prepared for me, despite all my imperfect!

I love this picture of the road full of ruts leading to the heavens. Seems a bit like my life today. Not beautiful or perfect but it gets the job done :) So I'm going to get off the computer and start doing a little better now! Thanks for letting me share!

Matthew 7: 13 & 14
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

we're lucky that our children are so forgiving :)
I hope tomorrow is a better day!
