Days Like This

Today was one of those days. We've all had them so I'm sure you can relate on some level. I let the forecast really bother me today. It's gray, cold and rainy and will be ALL WEEK LONG. Except for Saturday when it will just be gray and cold so that we can go sit at Brandon's baseball game for no less than 3 solid hours. See why I need to be grateful today? I need to remind myself that "as long as thanks is possible, then joy is always possible" Thanks Ann VosKamp. I love her! :)

Side note: My husband just came in the room and asked me what I was doing. I told him I was writing a post for my blog and he goes, "You have one? Since when?" Then I said, "Yes, since last June." SWEET COMMUNICATION. Hi Bryan, nice to meet you. LOL

Praise the Lord that tomorrow is a new day. Rain or shine and I get to choose my attitude. Thanks to the VeggieTales Devotional For Boys for pointing that out to me tonight as I was putting the boys to bed. It's my choice. Lord, help me choose well.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. LOVED this post. It's so true - it's all about attitude, isn't it!? My mood is always affected by the grey days too...
