You know, somedays life is smooth sailing. Everything melds. Everything goes easily. Everything just works.
Then there are other days that are a bit more rocky. Things go wrong. Things are frustrating. Things just don't seem to go right.
I must say that lately it's been more smooth sailing than anything. I've been feeling the joy of how harmonious life can be. I am loving the ages the kids are at, loving how they still like to be with us but are independant enough to do things without our constant supervision. I've been feeling fairly confident in the kids new school and happy with the results of their 2nd report cards (YEAH for Chase, who got straight A's, and kudos to Tristan and Carissa who got great marks but who don't get letter grades yet). I've been loving the joys of being married to Brian. Life is good in so many ways. Even my migraines have slowed down immensily. Everything has been fairly smooth and I love that!
Then there are days like today. Days where it all comes crashing down. Where worry about the one bad teacher haunts me. Where worries about money and bills start nagging at my brain. Where the kids irresponsibility plays on my last nerve. Where I feel down on myself and my body. Where the pulls and tugs of my overfilled schedule starts stressing me out. Where I can feel the tension build up inside of me. Where I shout and overreact too easily. Where I feel as if nothing is right.
Thankfully I know tomorrow will bring different things. Tomorrow I will wake up and start a new day, a fresh start, a chance for smooth sailing again. But for now it's just getting through today. Getting through the rocky times. Getting through the worries of my life and trying to remember that I am blessed with so many days where life is good. And most of all, remembering that I am so lucky that I have it all.
