I channeled Sarah Palin the other day when I had an extremely hectic morning and had people coming to my house at 9:30 for Bible Study.
Why is it those are always the days when you don't wake up on time? I generally try to be showered before taking Madelyn to school, especially on days when I know I need to be somewhere, but when I wake up, yes WAKE UP at 7:30, and have to still get the kids up, dressed, fed, take dogs, out, pack lunch, etc. so we can leave at 8! That just is not enough time.
So, as I am complaining in my head about all the things that threw me off that morning, of all mornings, I thought, "You know, I bet Sarah Palin has crazy mornings too and she has to then run out the door and meet with heads of state, presidential people, etc. All I need to do is make sure I am presentable to the few women coming to my house to study the Word." hmmm ... that put things into perspective. Not only that I was also thinking that the women coming over could very well be having similar types of mornings that I was having. hmmm ... more perspective.
So, what better way to end a hectic morning than fellowshiping with fellow women, all who are so great, and talking about Jesus our savior? It was good. It was all good.
