At 5:30am I was woken by the sound of my dog vomiting in my room. At 6:30am I was outside in the cold walking my dog after she inhaled a half-gallon of water. At 7:30am my daughter broke her glasses, just in time for the state math exam. Enter her Papa with super glue to the rescue.
Sometimes we just have rough starts. Today was one of those. Fortunately, they tend to smooth out. Often someone comes alongside us, to walk through the rough spots, hold our hand, and help us keep it together.
Today I am grateful for rough starts. They remind me of the bigger picture and help me not to focus so much on the little things.
I am thankful for those who come to my rescue. Some are praying me through, whether I know it or not. For others, it’s the offer of a cup of coffee and adult conversation. My favorite are the hugs.
And I will always be grateful for superglue.
