Ever have those kind of days where you just feel like crying?
I, thankfully, don't have them very often. Usually I am able to brush things off enough, and not "sweat the small stuff" so to speak. But occasionally, blame it on hormones if you want, I have one of those days where I just want to go home, crawl into bed, snuggle with my boys, and maybe shed a tear or two. Today was one of those days.
I have a very challenging co-worker - and my patience is often being tested by her. Today she won. I let her get to me enough that I felt defeated.
And I hate that.
So, on my lunch break today, to try to keep from tearing up, I asked myself…what would make me feel better right now? What would make me forget about my stresses? What can I count on for relief?
So I called Jeff. I am a very lucky girl, and whenever I need him, he is there for me. Always. Every. Single.Time. But, today he was busy at work so he couldn't answer his phone. Darn!
Time for Plan "B". Well, I can't exactly call my son at daycare and tell him about my crummy day. But…seeing his face is all I need for a little pick-me-up. So, I scrolled through the pictures on my phone.
That's how many pictures I have…on my phone! And 77 video clips. Now, I can't say that all of them are of B, but I'd probably be safe to say 97% of them are (maybe more?).
I purchased my phone only a few weeks before Brody was born…so it's really fun to start at the beginning and watch him grow up through the screen of my Samsung.
Thank God for technology. Most days you'll hear me complaining about my phone…but today I'm thankful for it. Because it connects me to my loved ones (all of you!) and helps lift my spirits when I need it. :)
What or who is your go-to for a quick pick-me-up? And how many photos are on your phone camera? Am I the only loony with 533?
