Tuesday

Chances are. . .

(blog re-run; proving the grouchy part)

I probably don't like you today. You're either too cheerful or too grouchy. I think you're either too self-centered or too nosy. You were driving too fast or too slow. You don't do your share or you make the rest of us look bad. You either refused to talk to me or you interrupted my solitude. You add to the mess or you criticize my housekeeping skills by helping me clean. (OR you may have said, "At least it's not as hot as it was yesterday," even though it's still 90 -flippin'- seven degrees on April 19!!!) Chances are, I don't like you today.

Don't take it personally -- I don't like myself too much today, either. But today is almost over (GLORY!) Tomorrow morning I will thank God for the promise of a new day, the coolness of a new season, and the never-ending well of His grace and mercy.

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22,23

Okay, I'm just now noticing that my original post was going to be thankful for "the coolness of a new season". So, tomorrow I guess I will thank God for not MELTING in the heat of this new season!

Laughing, Ohhh, grouchy days are not fun. I hope you do have a better one tomorrow!

"Ninety-flippin'-seven degrees"???????????????????????????

I am laughing so hard there are tears streaming down my cheeks.

Thankfully I don't wear as much makeup as I did in our Super Pickle days, so there are no trenches on my cheeks.

I think that there is a Very Slumping bug going around.

Chocolate Easter candy stolen from my kids' baskets always makes me feel better.

Any one else wonder how much candy our parents stole from our basket or pumkin? I notice and my kids haven't seemed to either.

It was so hot today the chocolate in my candy drawer was a bit soft! I just keep thinking that last year it was over 100* in May and then it didn't reach it again for the rest of the year. Here's hoping.

Thanks for the laugh! I know those "don't like you" moments. Hope it gets better! ;)

Hi! I get these feelings sometimes when I'm stuck in a really crowded metro! It's usually a strong perfume or the constant ranting over a mobile phone that gets on my nerves in the early morning rush hour. Knowing that these are unloving thoughts, I'd quickly read some bible verses. Try this one the next time; Philippians 4:8
'.. whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.' Cheers & God Bless!
