I would have to say the high of my week was having conversations with good friends. I can think of at least 3 good friends, 1 being a family member as well as a friend, who I had a good conversation with this week. They encouraged me and I hope I encouraged them. I am so thankful for friends who get me and who I can be myself with.
The low point of my week would definitely be the stomach bug that hit our family this week. Saturday night Sawyer got sick in the middle of the night. Sunday night Jax woke up with it and it hit me on Monday evening. I did lots of laundry, used plenty of Lysol, and took care of two little sickies for much of our week. The only good thing about it is that it went away quickly and we are all back to normal.
Another low (pretty bad week when I can think of more than one) was losing my patience with my children. I just had a day this week that I wish I could get a do over on. It was not my best Mommy moment. It left me feeling drained, defeated, and just plain mad at myself.
The lesson I learned is that His mercies are new every morning. When we come to our Heavenly Father and confess that we messed up and that we need forgiveness, He never fails to meet us where we are. Of course, this isn't the first time and it won't be the last that I needed a reminder of this lesson. He is a God of second chances and that's just another reason I love Him so much and am thankful to be His daughter.
