It’s Monday morning, 7am. I was in the middle of my workout while my teen girls were getting ready for school and one of them flops onto the couch with just 20min til the bus and was like:⠀

“MOM! I have NO clothes.” ⠀

Apparently all her clothes were dirty. Guess what the first words out of my mouth were???⠀

“Oh my gosh ARE YOU SERIOUS why didn’t you freaking wash them this weekend?????” (Like, duh.)⠀

Then I heard that still small voice gently whispering this verse ... ⠀

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.” Psalms 19:14⠀

The small voice reminded me ... “grace. goodness. kindness. mercy .....” and it was so cool in that moment to be able to change my words!⠀

Instead of being mad, I helped her load a wash of clothes and took her to school a little late with a smile on a face and a song in my heart. ❤️ ⠀

I mean ... that’s the whole REASON why I work from home anyway, right??!! To be there for them. Thankful 🙌🏻
