If Circumstances Were the Sole Contributor...

then today would have been a very bad day!  However, God did give me a peace that surpasses understanding (for today at least) and I'd like to give Him the credit and share one remarkably Murphy day.

First, SnapDragon threw up (at 7 a.m. so it will be over 24 hours tomorrow morning and he can go to school!).

Second, Oak chipped a tooth/filling and had to go to the dentist.

Third, Sunflower performed a miracle and created 4 cups of oatmeal out of 1/4 cup of oats and painted a masterpiece on the dining room furniture and her dress, legs, and arms.

Fourth, Oak called to tell me he needs a crown and it would only cost $700 (this is with insurance).  He prefaced this story that this is the GOOD news!

Fifth, the server room at Oak's work caught on fire.  They were shutting the building down so he'd probably be home early but would eventually have to work overtime to get the server's cleaned and up and working to make all the professors happy.

Sixth, Sunflower refused to sleep during her nap.

Seventh, my headache finally gets so bad I remember to take some Tylenol.

Eighth, Oak says he won't be home as early since they allowed him to get two of the server's out and he was setting them back up, but home by four.

Ninth, our friend Facebooks that he is going back to Texas one day early.

Tenth, husband gets home at 5:45 carrying teriyaki. (Happy about the food, not so content with the time.)

Eleventh, husband plans to go back to work after Awanas to do more clean up and server checks.

Umm, I guess MY HUSBAND had a bad day, not me!  Really none of it is too bad, and I really did feel content most of the day.  Certainly the GOOD day of yesterday, God's comfort, and a better perspective helped, but I'll also admit possibly the 10 minutes cuddling on the couch between dinner and Awanas, the knowledge that only having 3 children wouldn't be the end of the world, and an anticipated evening watching whatever I want on TV since Oak is at work with Huckleberry, Sunflower is in bed, and SnapDragon is going to bed right now.
