Lest that post at all communicated that our house is always clean, please know we were a hot mess by Friday night. These pictures are proof.
This doesn't even do it justice... you can't see the other counter and the kitchen table!
This picture was taken at 4:30. I was in the kitchen and noticed Emma had been unusually quiet for a minute. I peeked in on her in the next room to find she had dug an apple core out of our library bag. We had gone to the library at 10:30 and Addie had an apple there...
What? You don't let your kids eat 6 hour old half eaten apples?
All 3 of these people pictured had a nasty diarrhea stomach bug for a few days. TMI? It was rough. Let's just say there was a lot of poop. And a lot of laundry. And a lot of diapers. And a lot of movie watching for the 2 year old.
You win some and you lose some.
Don't give up when you have a losing day.
Tomorrow is a new one and there is grace for each day.
There's a line in the old hymn, Great is thy Faithfulness, that I love...
"strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow"
Whether you are having a messy-house-babies-eating-old-apples-on-the-floor-kind-of day or you are walking through a heavier trial,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
That's a good prayer. Even if it's just about diarrhea.
