Yesterday was a hard day.
No incredibly real reason why.
It just went by slow,
and things kept falling apart rather than come together.
It was an all-time high of 114 degrees out.
And little man does not like 'staying cool' inside.
I felt let down by people I thought I could count on.
And the end of summer is steadily creeping up which makes me feel somewhat depressed.
Because even though little man is starting a new, great school.
And hubby has a wonderful new job.
I'm going back to school too...
I know, pity party, right?
I graduate in December with my Bachelors in Occupational Therapy
But that doesn't mean a whole terribly lot.
I stil have a year and a half left to complete my Masters.
And yesterday, and today, that seems like forever away.
I'm not looking forward to late night study sessions
and stressful midterms
and feeling inadequate, like I'll never learn it well enough.
Though I am excited about my second round of clinicals
and seeing my OT peeps.
I'll get over it.
Yesterday was just one of those down (and incredibly hot) days.
But, nevertheless, it's always a good reminder to know that God is in control
and that I really have nothing to do with it.
So all that for this...
a fresh coat of paint on a great reminder :)
I picked this up at Big Lots forever ago because I liked the etched stone look.
This thing is heavy and I like having it out as a good reminder :)
I felt it blended in too much with the fireplace so I gave it a quick facelift with some gloss white paint.
For the words, I just took a black marker and filled them in to let them pop.
I also lightly brushed black paint on the flourishes to help them stand out a bit more.
Hope it's a good reminder for you, today, too!
