Some days just aren’t our days, I’m pretty sure this happens to everyone. Yesterday, started off great! It actually ended pretty great too, there were just a few self-inflicted bumps along the way.
I fell in a hole, literally! Ha, well actually I fell over a hole! Allen was digging a portion of his gas line and the boys thought the three-foot open Valley of dirt looked fun to run through! Who wouldn’t!
As I was trying to pull Cobe out while he was climbing, his strong 100 pound body was too much for me. I obviously did not have my feet firmly planted! I face planted across the whole thing landing on my hand and wrist, scratching up my face a bit and bloodying my lip. It was epic. Luckily, no one was hurt terribly, it was a show stopper for sure! I’m pretty sure I have sprained by index finger, I read that I shouldn’t try to use it! In a few short hours I have found how near impossible that may be. Right hand, main finger, we’ll see 🙂
Anyhow, this morning I have just been struggling to not complain! Yes, I have a few outward scars, but it could have been a lot worse. I don’t want something so small to run my life, I don’t want my circumstances to dictate my attitude. I almost didn’t blog today but I just couldn’t tuck the thought away.
There are always things that go on in our daily lives that cause us grief and worry, but they don’t have to rob us of the joy that surrounds us! One way I feel better is getting it off my chest, this is always true for me! I just have to be honest with those I’m surrounded by and most importantly myself.
I’ve said this before, most of the time 95% of my life is perfect and 5% is up in turmoil but somehow I let the 5% rule over me! I’m working each day to switch that around! There is so much good to be thankful for, like when I dropped Cobe back into the valley that he didn’t get hurt! That I didn’t have any broken bones, and I now have a sweet story of how my sweet little boys showed major compassion for their Momma when I needed them.
I will definitely call for Allen’s help next time, however if I would have planted my feet firmly and stood my ground it could have been different. Just as our daily walk, we have to plant our feet firmly and stand our ground against things that try to suck our joy away!
Let the 95% rule in your life today!
