Today was determined to be a rough morning. My oatmeal overflowed in the microwave, and while cleaning the bowl, I accidentally filled the bowl with water. Bringing Dash downstairs, I spilled coffee all over my jeans and on the floor. While moving cars around to take the trash out, it started pouring. I left my phone. My car was low on gas, and I decided to wait until I was close to work to fill it, which was a little scary. Then traffic was absolutely horrible.
What I want to remember: I almost never have oatmeal, and even watery, it was still a treat. I cleaned up the coffee with a washcloth, and I felt a little like my mom, and that made me feel responsible. Taking the trash out meant my husband didn't have to do it later :) I have my own office with my own phone, and sometimes it's good to unplug from the world. My car made it to work! I love rainy days, and I can see a little out of my manager's window. I got to use my bright umbrella! And, since I worked late yesterday, it works out well for me to leave a little early today, so I can rescue Dash (whose pee I haven't cleaned up for days)! And most of all, it's the 17th, which means it's our two month anniversary :)
Note to my husband: It's been unfortunate that I get a little crabby at late night and well, that's the only time you've been seeing me this week. I'm sorry it makes me a little competitive, paranoid, and future-minded. I'm sorry that you come home to oddly serious conversations instead of playful or light-hearted ones. I know that prevents home from feeling like a safe and warm place. That's going to change soon at least :) Please know that even with my sour face and weird questions that you have the grace to treat with seriousness, you coming home is the best part of my day. I promise to work on making that more evident in my words and actions. I am so so in love with you, I am so happy that 2 short/long months ago, I got to marry you! Love you!
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other in Christ as God forgave you.
My brothers, take note of this, be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry.-James 1:19
