one of those days

Today was one of those days.
Have you ever had one of those days?

I felt like I was on the verge of tears most of the day.
It felt like my eyeballs were sweating all day.
You know that feeling of tears in the corners of your eyes?
The crusty outer corners when the tears leak out and dry?
Just plain old weepy.
I don't know why.  I think I'm tired from the time change.  How can 1 hour make that much difference?
Maybe it's hormones.  I don't know.

The day started out with my usual fun chat at school.  Today was exceptionally fun and relaxed.  So much so that I was almost late to work.
and then things went downhill.  fast.
I got to work and BOOM!
I'm thankful for my job and the provision God has made.  I'm thankful for the people with whom I work.
But today was just not a good day for me to go to work.
Details aren't important but it's a good thing it's Friday.
I dropped an open can of diet coke and spilled most of it as I walked in my front door this afternoon.
I replaced it with a large happy hour diet cherry coke.  The best.
and then I dropped it and spilled it.
It's a good thing we have hardwood floors.

But, God loves me.  I'm still His favorite :)
I had lunch with my sweet Annie.  It was just what I needed in the middle of the day.  We ate our lunch in the car in the Walmart parking lot.  We were hiding in plain sight.  I love it when I get her undivided attention!

I got an email this afternoon that I won another blog giveaway.

Isn't it a fun and happy green?  I'm pretty happy about that.  I have a friend who wears a lot more green than I do so we're going to share the ring.
This is the 2nd giveaway I've won this month.  Hannah says it's beginner's luck.

I went on a walk this afternoon and found these pretties on our corner.  It was like God was saying to me that He cares for me just like He cares for the flowers.  I needed this reminder that spring is right around the corner.  I needed this reminder from God that He knew today was going to be a bad day.  He showered me with His love this morning before work, at lunch and after work.  God is so clever and loving to give me all the highlights of my week on one of those days.
Thank you, Lord, for knowing my every need and for providing for my needs.  Thank you for loving me even when I'm tired and emotional.  and maybe a little hormonal.

So sorry you had a bad day, my friend. (and sorry I almost made you late for work!) I'm glad that's what didn't get your day started off wrong! Let's blame it on Gina. We're not used to her being a part of our morning chats. That's what threw us off. :)

Hoping today is a better day, my friend! Love you!
