Mug-spiration Monday *Vol. 22*
Monday, December 7, 2015
Happy Monday! Can I just say how happy I am that it is getting chilly?! I love that I can wear a long sleeve shirt without wanting to switch to a bathing suit by 1pm! It's December, so thank you, weather, for catching up!
I am also loving the ability to listen to Christmas music without being judged by the world! Three weeks ago, it was socially unacceptable to have "Jingle Bells" cranked up (that didn't stop me!), but now everyone is doing it. I'll take it. I'd rather not have to defend my habits ;)
I spent Saturday hanging out with my mom, dad, and brother at the farm. I also enjoyed playing with the puppy and the new piglet my mom just got. SO STINKIN' CUTE (and loud)!
Our internet is currently out (grrrrr!) so Taylor and I went to a coffee shop after church to use the wifi. We ended up at a place called Mugs, and it was really good. The walls were filled with local art, the coffee was good, and they had plenty of seating and outlets to use. I definitely plan to go back!
As far as today goes, I'm going to be perfectly honest and say I am grumpy and just not feeling like "lifing it" today. I just want to crawl under the covers in the fetal position and go back to sleep. Don't worry, I'm ok. I'm just having one of those days.
But as many times as I've told you guys to persevere, I really need to as well. I can be a blessing to the little girl I take care of, and I want to do that. My grumpiness should not stand in the way. I have the ability to love, to do a good job, to create, and to be a blessing each day that I am alive. So what if I feel like getting back in bed? I obviously cannot do that, so it's time to suck it up. I am important (no matter how small I feel), I am loved, and I can do it! And guess what!? The same is true for you!
Don't let feelings of grumpiness, sadness, frustration, anger, or inadequacy keep you from living well. Use today to live a full life, for the glory of God. You can do it! I can too!
