The final straw...

Tonight at dinner I was pouring some orange juice and managed somehow to miss my glass and dump it instead all over my shirt, my pants, the table, the chair and the floor.  I stood up, walked into my room, changed out of my now orange clothes and got into the shower. I needed to wash the sticky off as well as indulge in a much needed cry. I hate this part of being a girl, you are going along just fine and then wham! Out of nowhere a burst of hormones and you just have to cry over the spilled milk, or orange juice...

After I got cleaned up I felt a little better, but still kind of fragile. And it didn't take very long for someone to break me down again. I think it was one of the children because they didn't listen and jump to the first time I asked them to do something. Can you imagine?

I sat down to post in a decidedly unhappy mood and was sitting here wracking my brain for a way not to just dump emotional garbage all over my blog, when I came across the lyrics to a song that I love but haven't heard for awhile. I love the message of this song and just listening to it has helped me feel much better. Plus this is a much better post than me listing out and dwelling on every little thing that's gone wrong today.

I hope you enjoy it too!

"Keep on the Sunny Side"

There's a dark and; a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

The storm and its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear;
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour away
Who keepeth everyone in His care.
