We have all been there.
You wake up in the morning, having expectations for a productive, stress free day– and within an hour, or maybe even within minutes, something happens that sets the tone for a not so perfect day.
Isn’t that annoying? How ONE thing can go “wrong” and your attitude goes south with it?
Spilled milk, arguments over breakfast, earlier than anticipated wake ups, being out of a certain cereal, forgetting to do something, change of plans, grumpy kids, grumpy husband, plans for the day falling through– any of these happen to you?

I don’t have many perfect days. If I had to describe one, it would be where I didn’t have to clean up a single mess, sleep however long I wanted, ate lunch or dinner without cutting anything up for the kids, or reading a book until I finished it. But alas– I am a mother– so my actual perfect day is good behaviors, a fun outing, new discoveries and watching them learn something new.
That doesn’t always happen. The good generally outweighs the bad, but it’s never perfect.
And why should it be? We aren’t created perfect, and neither are our days. It’s called LIFE.
Don’t stress if you aren’t having a perfect day or week or even month. God doesn’t expect perfection, so we shouldn’t either.
