If I could put a day in a bottle and save it forever – taking I tout and reliving the joy and the emotions – yesterday would be such a day.
The weather was warm and delightful.
I spent a lot of time laughing and playing with my daughter.
Not a disagreement occurred.
We planned only a movie in the morning… and took the rest of the day as it came. Wow, what a day it was.
Yes, yesterday is a day I would bottle… form beginning to end, it was joy filled.
As often happens, such a day is followed by a day that is trying in one way or another.
A day that tests my spirits and my strength.
This morning found me reacting where I need not have reacted; emotionally charged when calm and peaceful might have been a better strategy.
That little voice inside my head said “quiet” “Close your mouth.” “Open your heart.”
I hold on to the joy of yesterday; letting it wash over me to the extent that I can.
But it doesn’t stop the tears that crowd and spill forth with the anger and frustration and that I feel – the frustration.
