Today I woke with my boys rather then attempting a little more sleep for all of us, it always fails so today I rose.
Today I declared it a pajama day. We all dressed in fresh new jamies and began our day. I even showered early this morning. Today I showered the boys "all by my own."
Today I said snacks for breakfast, but I didn't yell or scream for them to be quiet while I worked to get breakfast ready. They were quite satisfied with crackers, bananas, and cupcakes before the sun woke.
Today I snuggled in close with the hoolies as we watched way too much TV.
Today I knew when I needed a break and let them continue on the movie marathon without me. What Momma doesn't need a breather in each day.
Today I spent hours in the Bible with my helper friend. It was goooood.
Today I conquered without retreat because of frustration, anger or tears.
Today was the first of many days to come.
Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; and deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name's sake...So we Your people and the sheep of Your pasture will give thanks to You forever; to all generations we will tell of Your praise.
~ Psalm 78:9 & 13
