Rainy Day turned Sunny

I woke up today to a very cloudy and rainy day....and unfortunately, Summer's mood matched the day perfectly.  She woke up unhappy and spent the day fussing over almost everything....every time she tripped and fell on the floor while walking around, the fact that Elmo wouldn't sit up straight, the fact that the basket handles tipped over instead of stood up straight, etc, etc, etc.

Not only that, but she tested and disobeyed throughout the whole morning too.....nothing like trying to decide how to follow through on disobedience when she is already having an "off" day!  Needless to say, I was feeling down, and just like a really bad mom (I always feel that way when we have so many discipline issues in a row!). 

I put down Summer for a nap an hour earlier than normal.....checked my computer....and...

Psalm 139 was in my devotions for today, 3 friends told me they were praying for me, and two friends offered to watch Summer.....I was absolutely blown away! I honestly could not believe it!

Not only that, but Summer fell asleep right away, which allowed me to take an hour and a half nap!  Everything looks better when I am well rested.  And, Summer is STILL sleeping (this is going on a 3 hour nap for her!). 

Thank you, God, for putting your Word and encouraging friends in my life right when I needed it (like really needed it!)  If you are one of those friends, THANK YOU!  Your encouragement meant more than you know, and I hope that I can return the favor sometime soon.

Hugs, Kel!! Days like this just plain stink. It's awful when they wake up grumpy and can't seem to snap out of it! Praying tomorrow is sunny!!!
