This is the day...

My morning so far, besides slurping coffee, checking email, and farting around on Facebook:

- I wake up and trudge my way into the kitchen to start the coffeeer (I sneezed while typing that and decided to leave it as is) pot to find cat yark in the hallway. Yay.

- Cat #1 following me around and/or glaring at me from the vicinity of their dry food dish because I haven't yet refilled it. There's still food in it, but you know, he has to bend a little further to reach it. The horror.

- I pulled the coffee filter out of the coffee pot to throw it away, and it rips, spilling half of its contents on the floor. The dustpan needed exercise anyway.

These are the little things that can really set your day off wrong if you'll let them. But, today, I choose to laugh about them instead of allowing any frustration to build. I know that this is the day that the Lord has made! And my God doesn't make bad things.

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24


  1. LOL! Love it - that sounds remarkably close to my day - if you subtract the spilled coffee grounds and add a really messy cat using her litterbox, which resulted in my cleaning the whole bathroom instead of just the box. Figured as long as I was cleaning... ;)

    1. Haha! Yeah, as I was cleaning up the cat puke I thought to myself, "Well, that part of the floor needed to be cleaned anyway!"

  2. Excellent prose. You made an interesting story hilarious. Thanks for the smile and reminder of the day.
