The Perfect Mess

It was an early spring morning and the birds chirped cheerily as the sun rose in the sky.

Cup of coffee in my hand, I sit down in the rocker, on the front porch, to spend a few minutes in the Word.

Being allergic to mornings, this is a rare, but sweet occurrence. To have some quiet before the pitter-patter of little feet hit the floor makes me feel so much better about the day.

And I have big plans for this day. This day we are starting fresh with a new schedule that I have laid out.

This day we are going to accomplish big things.

I am going to smile more. We are going to finish all of our schooling. I am going to take time to play, read books and interact with each one of my blessings. The house will be in order when dear husband comes home to the delicious aroma of the dinner I have cooked.

Yes, I contentedly sigh within, it is going to be a good day.

And then it happened….

I am over at Raising Arrows today, guest posting. Join me over there for…the rest of the story!
