Happy Wednesday! This morning was madness in our house - trying to get everyone up, fed, dressed and out the door. I even managed a shower, so that's a plus! Somehow in the craziness of this morning, I managed to pull the scale out and was thrilled with what I saw - I lost 2 pounds this week! As of today, I'm down 21 since this deployment started and I have four more to meet my goal of 25.
After I dropped Grace off at school I went to the grocery store with Autumn and this crazy, kinda scary looking guy kept coming up to me, wanting to see the baby. I don't understand why strangers think they can get all in your baby's face and why they think they can touch them. So, I kept moving the cart away from this guy and putting myself between him and Autumn. I struggle with trying to be gracious and making sure that my kids are safe. By the time we were leaving the store I was feeling frustrated and I just wanted to get home and away from Mr. Crazy. A store employee stopped me before I could get to the door and I almost snapped at her, but then she pulled out a bouquet of flowers and asked if I would like them. Honestly, I started to tear-up. That's exactly what I needed, and so far it's been the highlight of my day.
Take a moment today in the midst of your to-dos, trying to handle your family responsibilities and crazy people around you and look for ways to bless others!
