1 All that I am, praise the Lord;
everything in me, praise his holy name.
2 My whole being, praise the Lord
and do not forget all his kindnesses.
3 He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
4 He saves my life from the grave
and loads me with love and mercy.
5 He satisfies me with good things
and makes me young again, like the eagle.
Today was an "ordinary" day for me, and that's a good thing following a busy co-op day. I got through school with the kids uneventfully, two loads of laundry completed, walked on the treadmill, food prep for dinner and made it to piano lessons. What makes this even better is Tuesday's have turned into a rough day with my little guy consistently. I'm sure it is just being tired from Monday's as they are a long day. I have begun calling them "I don't care about anyone or anything" day for him. Now that I know this is consistent it has made it easier for me to "not care about him." That just means...ignore him more and let stuff go so it doesn't make me frustrated. It worked! I wasn't frustrated and he found it wasn't getting to me so he wasn't trying as hard to irritate me by late afternoon. A blessing. I just kept telling myself, "He's a gift from You God. I will praise You." Kept my heart much lighter.
