some days like today {and the promise of tomorrow}

Some days I wake up refreshed and happy.

Some days I am showered and dressed before my kids get out of bed.

Some days I am energized and feel like I can conquer the world.

Some days I have vision and feel like I’m making a difference.

Some days I am organized and prepared.

Some days I even have a plan.

But then there are some days like today….

where I am so tired, my body doesn’t want to get out of bed.

where my kids are the ones waking me up.

where I am so drained it makes me feel worthless.

where I feel so burdened but also so helpless.

where I am so overwhelmed it causes anxiety {and feel like a failure}.

where I have no agenda…or have one that doesn’t go as planned.


I am still learning how to wake each morning and see this day for what it is… a gift.

It’s not always easy for me {as you know if you’ve read this blog for any amount of time!}. But I am working on it, and try to remember the words from one of my favs…

“Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it.”

And then Miss Stacey so lovingly reminds me: “Well, there’s no mistakes in it yet…”

So if you are having a day like mine, take heart my friend, and know…just like another Ann(ie) knew so well….

the sun’ll come out tomorrow…



I’m going to bet my bottom dollar on that!


With love from {whichever you prefer},

Amber Anne …or… Amber Annie

    Amber Annie–

    Things I have said today:

    “I am so thankful my children act as alarm clocks but I wish they had a snooze button.”

    “My plan for today…( I never even finished the thought because my husband started laughing and said “you have a plan?) I replied “I always have a plan but most days I don’t get it done and go to bed feeling like a failure”

    Or my favorite, when asked if I felt I was accomplishing anything…”well, I keep three other humans alive so I must be doing something even if it doesn’t appear that way”

    Your blog site always hits home with me. And today was no exception. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. It has reminded me to Take a deep breath. You are a great mama and an inspiring friend.

    Oh, my tea cup this morning said “this is the day that The Lord hath made”. I will do my best to rejoice. (Even when my 7 yr old drops and breaks the whole carton of eggs from the farmers market, my two yr old pees thru his underwear onto all of my clothes–bra included, and our tv breaks).

    Hope that your day improves or that bedtime comes early! And please know that I so look forward to your blogs.
