A bit of a stresser.

Monday. Not the typical stressful day to me really. But today. YIKES!

I am PMSing terribly. And that is not just a phrase around this house. It is a condition that I do not take lightly when I have days like today.

Rowdy One is...well being, rowdy. Some days that little one tries my patience. On good days I can stand the battle. On not so good days, I fail miserably.

Wise One has a WISE mouth and today has not been a good day in that department.

Let's see. What else can I whine about? The Chosen One's alternator went out on the truck. A cable to the garage door snapped so it won't go up and the pool we had for summer BURST on Saturday and is still sitting in the backyard, no one can face the clean up.

Yeah, that should do it.................for now.

I love the following prayer. It comforts me. I will focus on it for the rest of the day. Something, I should have STARTED the day with. Thank goodness He is patient!

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
here there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master,grant that I may not so much seekt o be consoled as to
console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
