It's ALWAYS nice when....

Through a dark time in your life, you have an authentically good day. I didn't hardly sleep last night so honestly I figured the day would not be good at all. I started off with the alarm clock going off (you should all know I despise alarms that scream....I prefer my children to gently wake me up, it's just nicer that way!). I got maybe 2 hours of sleep, got up and headed to my board meeting, left there and went and met a friend and my secretary for Sparks (AWANA...I'm the director) so we could go over what we want/need ordered for the end of the year Awards ceremony. From there I went to our Health clinic to get a copy of the boys' Health certs for sports, went to sign them up for baseball, was told the paperwork the clinic printed off for me is no longer accepted, they have to have THEIR form filled out, back to the clinic talk to the nurse fill out what I need on the paperwork and she takes the paperwork and is going to have the dr fill it in (transfer all info from the other paperwork onto the "correct" form), I will be able to pick it up tomorrow, since all the drs were at required training for the afternoon, then go back and sign the boys up for baseball (tomorrow's the last day, has to be done!). Then I have to run to our post Gym and find out when we can set up a day for them to show the ladies from our bible study how to correctly use the equipment in the weight room and explain the importance of adding weight lifting to their work out routine (vs just cardio...you have to build your muscle to speed up your metabolism and lose weight and change that fat into muscle..cardio is important as well, but too many don't take into account the importance of weight training). After the gym I am heading to a store to find little boxes that I want to give out as love gifts for my ministry (to deployed spouses), I'm planning on giving them prayer boxes (so they can write down their prayers and burdens and place them in the box and pull them out from time to time and see how GOD has answer those prayers), and look and see what they have as far as natural wood photo frames go, for April's love gift!

Anyways back to today! (ok I guess technically it's now yesterday here in Germany). Even though I was busy, and got home in the afternoon and was EXHAUSTED and just as I was falling asleep for a nap, Emma woke up, so no nap (sniff-sniff)...the sun was shining all day, the temps were in the 50's, the boys spent the rest of their afternoon outside playing. My heart is still heavy, but even in the heaviness I was able to appreciate a day that although not perfect felt good none the less. I'm so thankful for today and am prayerful that tomorrow will be a good day as well.
