one of those days...

it's just been one of those days. the girls are fighting, literally, non stop. i feel like all i do is yell at them to stop. i have a pounding headache. baby is taking a while to fall asleep. the girls are being too loud. M isn't home for lunch (for that much needed break that i need). it's gloomy and cold outside. i just feel blah. down. defeated. motherhood has it's ups and down... and if i'm being honest, today is one of those down days. reading other mom blogs can be a wonderful thing b/c you know you are not alone. there are hundreds of thousands of moms out there, blogging about this exact same thing. now, i only read a precious few but one that i read today gave me a great quote that i want to share here:

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
M. Robinson

it might just give me that extra little push to get through to bedtime tonight. thanks alyssa!

Love her blog. So inspirational and full of God's word. And the pictures, AMAZING! Thank You for suggesting it during my trial earlier this year. I have gleamed so much from reading her thoughts, words, and the message that she lives out daily.

Oh and those "down" days...yes, we all have them but thankfully there are so many wonderful things about our kiddies, that we can and do get through those days. Although I had one of them a couple days before school started and I thought it may just push me over the edge that day!!! I know you love and enjoy your family immensely and that is the most important thing of all.
