some days are like that…


One of my favorite children’s books is about a boy named Alexander who, in his story, describes with great detail his, “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”
Nothing too awful happens in Alexander’s story, but lots of little things just get on his nerves to the point that he contemplates moving to Australia.

Today was kind of like that here.
A friend left facebook and I wondered how I would find her when I need her, another has a new name after a divorce, my son lost our house key, we were locked out of the house for a half an hour making my VBS planning that I had left for the last possible minute impossible, I had to call my mom and tell her we can’t come next month, one daughter was late, another lied, I was horribly impatient. Really, just horribly.

About half way through today I could tell it was going to be a, “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”

And then I found out that they are making this book into a movie, and well, I watched the trailer and bleh.

“Some days are like that. Even in Australia.”

I want you to see life the way I see it. Often contradictory, seldom predictable, many times lovely, occasionally tragic, but every day filled with God's grace.

  1. and isn’t it wonderful that God brings the new day and it is just SOME days? I am so glad we live with a start again life …… hope today is better!

  2. We have those “Alexander” days too – it’s just a million little things, but they can push me to an ugly place once piled on. Amen to new days and new starts. Here’s hoping and praying today is much less “Alexander-y” for you.

  3. Ugh, totally! My mom always used to say the old cliche, “When it rains, it pours.” I have had those days more often than not, especially when adding a child into this whole mix! Sometimes, you just have to go to bed and wake up to a brand new day! :p
    BTW, my husband TOTALLY knew exactly who Josh and Kara were! He said they are great people, as I’m sure you well know. What a crazy small world! LOL

    • Yea! I’m so glad he remembers them. We love them dearly! They are godparents to Oldest Daughter and we are godparents to their son. They do a much better job than we do. It’s who they are. Just lovely!
      This brand new day is off to a good start!

  4. Oh I loved this book!! Totally get those days. When I am having one, little and unimportant things that I can usually laugh at end up bringing me to tears. YAY! for new days. 🙂 Hope today is wonderful!!

  5. Horrible – no good day! Is that why His mercies are new every morning. We need the newness! Rock on, Heather. Rock on.

  6. Those kind of days are discouraging! Hope tomorrow is much better! 🙂

your comments are better than eating chocolate in a hammock on a 70 degree day...almost
