Mug-spiration Monday *Volume 16*

Monday, October 26, 2015

Good morning, wonderful people!
I recently stumbled upon a quote that said:
"I'm going to use what little energy I have today to breath and maybe blink. That's about it.".

I have to tell you, this quote fits me perfectly today. As I type, I am currently sitting in my recliner, coffee in reach, and wrapped in a bright red snuggie. It even feels like an accomplishment to reach over an pick up my coffee mug- that's bad!

Mondays have been like this for me lately. For whatever reason, I come away from my weekends feeling no more rested than I was before. It doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, but it is certainly inconvenient.

Thankfully, baby E doesn't care if I look like a bum or yawn a million times. As long as she is fed, changed, and loved on, she's good to go!

But maybe a lot of you are not as fortunate as I am with your job setup. Maybe you have a strenuous day ahead of you that requires a skirt, heals, makeup and a whole lot of energy. Maybe you had to be working the drive-thru at Micky D's at 4 a.m., or maybe you are just now getting off from 3rd shift but you still have to take the kids to school and clean the house before your head can hit the pillow. I'm sorry about that. I know it is frustrating. But try to remember- you are capable, you are strong, and you can do it!

Ask the Lord for strength, seek Him, and do all you can to take care of your mind and body too.

Need an extra pick-me-up? Here are a few things to get you motivated!

  1. Thanks for the words of encouragement! I'm coming off a no sleep night; my daughter was up sick last night, so I feel your exhaustion!

    1. Oh no! I hope she feels better soon.
      Father God in Heaven, please heal her and give them rest. In Jesus name amen.

  2. I love mugs with quirky little sayings that you mentioned above :) I have a coffee mug collection mostly from different mugs traveling!

    1. I love mugs too! I have "too many"...but can you really ever have too many mugs?

    2. Nope, nope- you can never have too many mugs. ;) (Says the girl with too many mugs.....)

  3. I can fully understand not feeling rested after the weekend. That happens to be more often than not. Thank you for the Monday encouragement!
