I think we all have "off days". Recently, we've been so busy, our "off days" have become a little more frequent (who said that summer days are lazy and hazy? That person clearly didn't have kids). A little hint of stress seemed to show itself, even during our nighttime hours and our precious weekends. When you are in the middle of one of those days, it is hard to see past the little things.
Thankfully, the opposite seems to be true for "on days" - those days that everything seems to be going well, everything just fits, meshes, flows. All of the little things that grind salt into the would on "off days" seem to be magical and mystical and amazing during "on days".
See, even that kid who ran into the frame made this image that much better. In a family, it is easy for one person's "off day" to infect the whole unit. On the flip side, if everyone else in the family is having an "on day", they can work together to bring Mr. Grumpy Gills (Nemo quote!) to a happy place.
That happened to me today. I've been moody, quiet, and on a short fuse all day (weekend). Lack of sleep from the weekend has really effected me. But Matt and the girls were well rested and in amazing moods. They simply ignored my bad attitude, brushed my "off day" aside, and included me in on their fun. They took me along on their adventure - their perfect adventure with perfect timing, planning, and good fortune.
Hope you all had a weekend of "on days"!
