one of those days...

this morning i was feeling a little overwhelmed and my patience was gone. i was being a bit harsher on my kids than i like to be (and always, of course, feel bad about in retrospect). i was ranting about something as i leaned over the seat to buckle finn in and i when i stood back up lucy said, "uh, mom..."
"what?!" (as in, "what could it possibly be now?")
she just pointed at me.
i looked down at my shirt.
a piece of jelly toast was stuck to me. jelly-side to my white shirt.
God always seems to throw those little reminders at you to slow down and settle down.

and i must say, God certainly has a sense of humor about it all...
