Some Days. . .

"Momma said there'd be days like this..."

Days that are just a waste of make-up.

Days that are meant to for pajamas.

Days that you need to take the phone off the hook.

... to be mad.
... to be sad.
... to be frustrated.
... to be disappointed.
... to grieve.
... to give in to self-pity.

It's okay. 

Give Yourself some Grace!

Go there.

Just don't stay there.

Unplug the phone.  Turn off the computer.  Grab your kid and place them in front of the tv - it won't kill them.  Grab a book and head to a bubble bath or just lock yourself in the bathroom with a box of kleenex and cry.

It's okay.

Then wash your face.  Put on your favorite lipstick.

And breathe.

And know, there are just some days. . .


  1. Amen; and thanks sometimes it helps to have permission to not be in a place of "it is okay" - sometimes you need permission to cry, be mad.....
