yesterday was the kind of day

...that makes you want to crawl in a hole and hibernate for about a year.

...that makes you question yourself about every five minutes.

...that makes you wish your parents lived closer so your mom could give you a hug.

But it was also the kind of day...

...that makes you grateful to have a sweet husband who gives amazing hugs.

...that makes you grateful that you don't have homework due the next day so you can vedge out on the couch for awhile watching something brainless on tv.

...that makes you grateful that you have some much-needed brownie mix hiding in your cupboards.

...that makes you grateful that even though you don't have the needed vegetable oil for said brownie mix, you can improvise and still have them turn out great.  [However crumbly they may be.]

...that makes you grateful that you still have leftovers from Saturday so you don't have to cook anything for dinner.

...that makes you grateful to be going out of town this weekend.

...that makes you grateful for Priesthood blessings to remind you that you are a child of God.

...that makes you grateful for quotes like this:

"Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day."  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

And so it is.

I'm so sorry that it was a hard day for you, Katie. You are such a sweet girl. If I had it my way I'd wrap you in bubble wrap and you'd never have hard days! You of all people don't deserve them! But I'm glad to see that you've somewhat gotten through it and that you have the courage to make it through. And thank you so much for that sweet facebook message! I'm just remembering that I don't think I ever thanked you for that. It was sweet. You are sweet! I love you even though we're mostly just cyber friends. Whatever you're struggling with, YOU CAN DO IT!

Gah! That does not sound like a fun day. But you made it through and on to better things! You are wonderful and I hope you have the most glorious weekend getting away!

Gah, I had one of 'those days' earlier this week too, no fun! Glad we have our husbands to make brownies for us! :)

I'm sorry you had a bad day. :( But I'm so glad you have such a sweet husband to love and support you! Blessings are the best. Especially when paired with brownies.
