Five Minute Friday- Because I said I would….

Because I said that I would post something every single day this month, good or not, I am blogging right now. And what better way to blog on a Friday than by doing Five Minute Friday (which is actually hosted by Gypsy Mama, but I won’t actually be linking to it this week… because I’m tired, and don’t feel like it…. you can google it… Sorry…).

So anyhow. I pretty much sat on my behind on the couch all day today with kleenex shoved up my nose in total misery. I’ve been sick for a week now and there is no let up in sight. Luckily today was Friday, so my mother-in-law picked up Lion Cub early this morning so I could do school with Rhythm just one-on-one (which ended up just being a huge struggle- a big bummer after a great day on Wednesday), and then The Carpenter took him up to Grammy and Pappy’s too for an overnight stay. I couldn’t be more thankful because I am just completely wiped out. In fact, I should be in bed right now but I am typing this silly blog post so that I can say I did it! Ridiculous!

And though my five minutes are up (yes, that stupidly short amount of writing took me five minutes), I will give you one little pearl that I learned this week. It’s an old adage, but one that proved itself in extraordinary ways to me this week-

If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!

(and yes, it took quite a bit of concentration for me to type the word “ain’t”)

But seriously, my mood, outlook, and responses to my family amazingly mirror what I receive back in return! I have never seen it so apparently as I did this week and I am determined to help turn this very difficult time in my household around (with Jesus’ help of course!) through the power of my attitude!

….well, that is, ya know, after I go to bed and sleep for like 10 hours… or maybe 15… with Vicks slathered all over me… and Kleenex shoved up my nose… but after that- it’s on!
