One of those days! And poop.

I had "one of those days" yesterday. I'm sure you know the kind. Nothing goes right, your house is a disaster, your kids throw temper tantrums at home, in the library, and everywhere else in between.

But today is the feast of St. Mary Magdalen! Praise God! Because there is no better reminder that God can pick us up when we fall down than this wonderful Saint. I have a personal devotion to her as I had a "reversion" to the faith about six years ago.

On the education front, we got some books from the library on the human body because John Paul has been obsessed with poop and where it comes from. So we'll do two weeks on the body, informally of course, and with lots of circle time. We've also been working on the short a and the short e sounds. Lately, John Paul has been a sponge, so I'm trying to really work with that without overwhelming him!

So for all of you who are also having "one of those days" try to remember St. Mary Magdalen today...God will always make up where we lack, and no matter how many times we turn away, He will always take us back!

  1. I read this post a few days ago but did not have time to leave a comment. I wa truly having "one of those days" only not it a streched to "one of those weeks". Thank you for guiding me to take another look into the scriptures to study Mary Magdalen. It was truly an encouragment.
