Have you ever been excited about an event and heard yourself say 'I hope everything goes well!' or you're struggling to stay motivated and pray the children will 'just be good today'?
I know I sure have. Sometimes feeling like you can't cope with one more challenge, or simply wanting a 'break from life' is normal. I mean...
How great does it feel when life's going well!
Your loved ones are healthy, the children aren't fighting, you feel on top of your to-do list and life's just GOOD.
