Two days ago, during one of our half dozen phone conversations, my sister-in-law, Paige, reminded me to "submit to the crazy." It's really just the wisest advice in the world, what with fighting the crazy (that which cannot be controlled, including unexpected interruptions, tantrums, broken appliances, illnesses, etc.) being so consistently frustrating and all.
We're on our way to drop Elijah off at drama practice (Is it really 12:30…already?), register my kids for school, get some groceries, and…oh good grief, Benji just dropped a weight on his finger and it's swelling like a balloon. Our bedrooms will most likely not get tidied again this afternoon, nor will the car…or the kitchen.
One deep breath, several prayers for mercy, a swipe of lip gloss and I'm off!
…in unforeseen events, let me not forget that all are sent by You.
