Today Is Almost Over

I tend to be a person who sees the glass half full. I try to live by the Serenity Prayer, and most days that philosophy works for me.


In that spirit, I have set out to find something good about today. Here's what I came up with: Today Is Almost Over.

That's the great blessing of life. Tomorrow will dawn a new day. 

I'm hoping that the new day will not involve a little girl with a fever of 104.6 degrees. I'm praying that the kids won't cough themselves to sleep tomorrow night. I'm fervently wishing that I will not be involved in another cow rescue operation involving a stomach tube and a bucket full of mineral oil. I'm willing the cows to stop calving until the temperatures creep above zero. 

I am thankful for my blessings, but I can't say that I'm sorry to see today end.

I can almost smell the morning coffee.

I hope she is feeling better this morning. I hate it when my kids run high temps like that- it is scary!

I hope you and the kiddos all slept well and awake to fresh, healthier day today!

Some of your cold weather slipped south - it was in the 80's for the last several days. This morning, we woke up to rain (desperately needed!), temps in the 40's and high winds that make it feel like it's in the 30's. Shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops yesterday, jeans and coats today!

I know that doesn't even begin to compare to the cold you have... but it is relative, you know!

Be blessed friend! I've prayed for you already this morning.

I hope your daughter feels well soon! And I hope you don't get it! I know my mom always got it taking good care of me. I always felt so bad for her. Hang in there!
