Tomorrow is a new day

What I’m trying to say is that I hope tomorrow will be better than today… So, I had a rough start.  Doesn’t it stink when it seems like you just can’t get yourself together?  Sadly, today was a day when I just got more and more frustrated… with myself, the kids, my house, I could go on and on.  I had the thoughts of wanting to escape and bunker down somewhere for a while and just allow myself to wallow in my feelings and pretty much explode all over God.  It was just a day that I was wishing I could be a better, nicer, prettier, calmer, more loving wife, mom, friend, daughter… person.  I worked through a lot of the frustrations, however I have the conviction in my heart to share with my children the faults that mommy had today (as I was quite stormy, to put it nicely) and to ask their forgiveness.  Sadly, I didn’t make the time to do this tonight before they went to sleep… as the header says, tomorrow is a new day, and I intend to follow through with what I know I must do.  My prayer for myself is: “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect harmony.” – Colossians 3:12-14

Tomorrow is a new day… I desire to dress myself in compassion, kindness, humilty, gentleness and patience; to bear my children’s faults and forgive any simple annoyances that occur throughout the day.  May I also have a heart full of love that rejoices in the blessings of life:  children who are healthy, a roof over our head, warm clothes, a patient husband… our blessings go on and on!  I will choose to thank God and know His love never fails.  Everyday is a new day!
