My Monday Morning

Happy Monday, Y'all :) I hope this finds each of you feeling fine and starting off the week happy.

I woke up this morning a tad tired. I heard my little one beckoning me... "Mammmaaaaa!" I usually like to get up before my little man starts his day - but it's Monday and it just didn't happen :)

I walk into his room and he has already opened up his curtains to welcome the day. He has the sweetest little grin on his face and he is looking out the window. The sun was shining! That's a rare occasion this time of year in our neck of the woods. More times than not - it is overcast and cloudy in the winter. So when the sun comes out - we celebrate!

As I mozied on over to his bed to get my morning hugs - my sweet little 2 year old turned to me and said, "Ohhhhh Mama - a pretty day!"

I scooped him up and agreed with him. We looked out the window for a while and thanked God for the sun. Suddenly, I wasn't so tired and my case of the Monday's disappeared.

I hate to admit it - but if my little guy hadn't stopped to enjoy his sunny surroundings this morning - his Mommy might not have even noticed it. I probably would have let my cloudiness of mind hover over my day - completely ignoring the light outside. But thankfully - I have been given this little boy who is content to just stop and revel in God's creations. He set his mommy straight this morning....

And even though the sunshine is hiding behind the clouds now - we have been having a "pretty day" ever since :)

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. - Psalm 19:1-2
