I need an attitude adjustment.
Here I am, queen of my home, with the responsibility to make it a warm and loving palace for the king and princess whom I live with.
Here I am, keeper of the bills, with forms to fill out, and the confusion of taxes to decipher.
Here I am, executive chef, with meals to cook and menus to plan.
Here I am, cleaning lady, with a sticky floor that is calling my name.
Here I am, wife, with a husband to listen to, and to encourage.
Here I am, mommy, with soft cheeks to kiss and yes, (four - today) very-messy diapers to change.
Here I am, research analyst, with future purchases to compare and contrast.
Here I am, administrative assistant, with a house to run while my husband studies to improve himself in his field of work.
Here I am, sister in Christ, with people to pray for and with.
Here I am, child of the King, with a loving Father in heaven Who has blessed me abundantly.
Here I am, wasting time, with a sinful spirit. I need an attitude adjustment.
What did I do today? I got anxious and annoyed. I wrote an email to Mr. S at work, bothering him with my confusion over our taxes. I wasted time getting frustrated because my calculator is out of batteries.
What should I have done? I should have paced myself. Prayed. Waited to bother my husband. Recited a Scripture or three to myself. Sang to Selena - because a joyful heart doeth good like a medicine.
I feel so much better already. The birds are chirping, and tomorrow promises to be a sunny day.
