I will admit that some days I wake up and I feel like this.

Those are the days when you think about all the STUFF you need to do and you wonder how in the world you will get it all done.

Lucky for me........

My rugrats get up early every day and milk the cows, gather the eggs and pick vegetables from the garden before they go off to school.  They come home from school and complete their afternoon chores, start dinner, complete all (A+) homework and bring their Momma a glass of whine and a hunk of cheese.

OKAY...... Not even close.....I do know what it feels like to have my butt tossed up in the air because of all the stuff I'm trying to get accomplished all at the same time  more to do than I have time to do it in.  And nobody getting off their rear to help  I know it can make me feel just like the above photo.

But other days...... other days I feel like this photo.

I've shared this photo before and many of you  remember that this was from my "sister trip" to Vail, Co.  I felt just like this picture looks that day. (Yes, I did blow out a flip flop and almost pee myself when I crashed landed)

What I love is when I wake up feeling like this picture. 

Today was one of those days.

How about you?  Did you wake up feeling blessed or did you feel like putting the pillow back over your head giving the kids large quantities of NyQuil and going back to sleep?

  1. I love that picture of you. I am totally going to have someone take a picture of me doing that someday...
    And I first read it as a glass of wine and Hunk a piece of cheese....?? I thought that was a little weird so I went back and read it again...ha ha!
    I don't always feel so peppy in the A.M. either, but I always try and lay there and say "Good morning Jesus" and it does bring me back to focusing on what really matters for the day.
    Blessings! :)

  2. I burst out bed most days and can't wait to see what Jesus is going to have me do for the day! Some days I put my foot in my mouth and can't believe I said that, whatever that was, but most days I am so happy to have another day!

  3. thank you O Mom! It was so much fun taking it. I made a bit of a fool of myself and almost wet myself laughing so hard but it was such a wonderful memory. I love spending time with my sister.

    I was a bit slow going this morning, I had an awful dream...

  4. Upnorth- Good for you!! And I think we have all put our foot in our mouth before. The fact that we recognize doing it says something. Right?

    Cheers to being happy to have another day!

  5. Hello dalink! I usually wake up feeling great and ready to attack the day - except for those days when I read a stupid mystery book and couldn't put it down because I just HAD to know whodunnit - so was up waaaay past the bedtime. Those mornings I need a wee bit more caffeine!! That is one of my fave pix of you.

  6. LBD- I know books can suck you rigth in! Usually mine is when I'm reading my "Karen Kingsburry" books. Anything by her sucks me in. LOL.... But have to admit I can also get sucked in by the boob tube and make it hard to get up. LOL

    This morning for example, I'm heading back to the kitchen for some more COFFEE...please and thank you. (smile)
