Some days just don’t deserve 24 hours

Our first day of school…Why do I ever think we can have a good first day of school?  Isn’t there some sort of saying about repeating the same action and expecting a different result?  Well, I was certainly feeling crazy!  Things started well enough—I prayed, read my devotions, finished my chores, got the kids up in a timely matter.  We gathered after breakfast to discuss the new year, the new schedule and get situated.  We prayed together, did science….  Then everything went horribly wrong.  I can’t even put my finger on what the problem was.

I ended up putting myself in timeout for a shower just to cool off.  I couldn’t help but wonder who I thought I was fooling.  I’m no good at this!  I can’t do this!!  I felt so lousy about myself I just wanted to start the day over—NO!  I surely didn’t want to REPEAT the day…I know.  I just want the day to be done.  Who ever said that every single day ever HAS to have a whole 24 hours?  That is just a silly rule!


Praise the Lord for Day Number Two.  If I didn’t hold out for Day Number Two, there would have been only one Day One!
