I know I ended yesterday’s post by saying that I was going to prepare the kids’ things for our bird-watching activity with the ROCKERS in honor of today, the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi, but sadly, we weren’t able to join them at the last minute. I started feeling unwell and Anthony didn’t want to leave me alone with Anne, so everyone ended up staying home.
I did feel a teeny bit better later in the morning though, so I brought the kids to a much-anticipated playdate with their fellow homeschooling friends. You see, I’m all about keeping our promises to our children, and this playdate was something they had been looking forward to for the loooonggggeest time!
So off we went, and they really had lots of fun! It was a time to catch up a bit with my friends and fellow homeschooling moms too, so it was a win-win situation for us all!
It was my mom’s birthday yesterday, too, and we had planned to visit her after the kids’ playdate. Sadly, once we got home, I started feeling really sick again. So much so that I ended up sleeping most of the afternoon, which meant that the kids had to “fend for themselves,” in a way.
Rysse kept herself occupied with playing and watching some Mother Goose Club videos, while Tim built all sorts of things from his Legos. Praise God that Anne also slept for a while, so I didn’t have to “deal with” her. 😛
Praise God, too, that Anthony was able to come home earlier than he usually does — I had to send him a “PLEASE HELP!” sort of text message, when the kids were hungry and I couldn’t pull myself out of bed! Thank God again that He led us to this apartment, which is really near Anthony’s office. GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME! 🙂
So yes, there are days when things don’t go the way we want them to… but I still thank God that He makes all things work together for our good (Romans 8:28)! Even if yesterday didn’t go the way I had planned it to, He still showed me that He is in control of everything in our lives! 🙂
How about you? What do you do when things don’t go according to your plans?
