My day started off with me waking up with a left over migraine from last night (you know what I am talking about if you have migraines) and I had practically no sleep. I wake up to a messy house because I didn't clean the house before I went to bed. I have not been drinking Dr. Pepper lately and I am a grouchy monster (at least I am a grouchy monster who is trying to be healthier) and I had 8 children that I needed to get fed, dressed, bathed and off to school. I really needed to go running but had no energy. So I started off my morning in a really bad mood.
I don't know about you, but when I am tired I think the world is coming to an end. Major drama. I do not cope well. At all.
So, on my way to pick up Tyler and Lois from Kindergarten I get a call from my Angel mother. This is where my story gets better. It always gets better when my Mom is involved. She says she had a strong feeling that she needed to call and check up on me!
That was the first sign.
Then, I happen to pass on the road another angel of mine, Tiffany, my best bud. We stop and chat for a minute and Tiffany lets me whine for a while. I felt better after talking to her, I always do. She invited Baily over to play.
That was the second sign.
Then, I go home and tell James that I felt like I was at a breaking point and needed some alone time. Without hesitation he sweeps me into his arms and lets me cry, then tells me to get dressed (yes, i was still my my PJ's...big whoop) and to go out and do something alone. The angel that I am married to never ceases to amaze me.
That was the Third sign.
So, I went to see Bride Wars all by my lonesome...which was so cool, the movie, and being alone. I had a nice Cesar salad and a popcorn all to myself. Then I went shopping and bought a cute hat, shirt and pajama pants. It was great! I felt so much better. I usually listen to talk radio while I am driving but instead I let the CD that was in the player run. It was a CD of Kylee's from an LDS group called Inside Out (check it out, your kids will love them!) And the first song to come on was a beautiful rendition of My Heavenly Father Loves Me. I felt the spirit so strong and knew that He loved me.
That was my Fourth sign.
To end my night I went to Enrichment and they had an amazing lady named Lara Gallagher come and speak. She spoke about organizing your life and simplifying. It was amazing and just what I needed to hear.
That was my Fifth sign.
I am so grateful that my Heavenly Father loves me. He knows me and what I need. Sometimes I think I know what I need and try to get that, but if I just let him lead and guide my life I can be happy. Truly happy.
Don't let the angels in your life go unnoticed.
