Today is going to be difficult. There will be parts that seem intolerable.
There will be irritation, annoyance,
and an ample amount of your requests being ignored.
Expect these things to occur.
Acknowledge that it happens.
Reconcile that it is normal.
Love yourself and your children despite these assurances.
Then you will find
That today is a good day
Filled with lots of little joys and oh so many hugs.
When you stop expecting beauty and brilliance, you’ll find you’re surrounded by it.
