The sun is shining after a late night rain shower. My son is in a good mood. Who wouldn't be when they aren't wearing pee-pee soaked jammies anymore? Other than a quick dust/vacuum and a swish & swipe on the loo, the housework is done. I got the laundry caught up yesterday. I could go play, take Gryffin to the bookstore and let him pick a new book and build houses for dinosaurs out of MegaBlocks. HOLY CRAP! What am I thinking! Gryffin and I are flying to Phoenix Tuesday to see my Mom & Dad and I haven't even thought about what we need to pack. We need to buy a few things too, Gryffin needs sandals, we both need T-shirts and super-duper, ultra high powered, suitable for vampires sunscreen. Ah the joys of being so pale you are practically transparent. I know I'm kidding myself on this one, but a new book to read while Gryffin is (God, I need your help on this one!) sleeping on the flight. Who knows what is living in the BIG suitcase in the basement- so I have to play mean landlord and evict some spiders. I won't feel too bad, they haven't paid rent. AHHHhhhhh! Sorry, tension breaker. Shew, ok, calm down, deep breaths, count to ten do all those crazy little things that don't really work but I always try them anyway. Heart back in chest- check. Adrenaline levels lowered- check. List making supplies ready- check. Mind concentrated- as much as it can concentrate on anything so a partial check. Now, dive in and don't drown! This will help, it is a prayer I wrote that gets me through the day. Maybe you can get some use out of it.
God, thank you for giving me the energy and frame of mind to do this. Thank you for keeping my mind focused on the result instead of what it will take to get there. Thank you for blessing me with this wonderful life so that now I can pass Your blessings on. I release all that I am and all that I have to You so that I can fulfill the potential You have given me.
