      Some days feel like all I have gathered up are missed opportunities. Missed opportunities with my kids. Good job honey, I can tell you are trying and I am proud of you. Awesome Job on the test! I knew you could do it! Way to go, you got the potty in the potty!

      It happens with my husband, girl friends, sisters, neighbors and strangers too. It could be as simple as the missed opportunity of sharing a kind smile or hello. Or something deeper like the chance to connect with a loved one and forgive and forget.

      It is days like these that hurt me the most. I want to build into my children, husband, other family and friends. And when I don't, I cheat myself out of seeing the power of life giving thoughts and words.

      I know that today won't be the last day I feel this way but my prayer is that as I move through tomorrow I recognize the opportunity when it happens and that I then pull myself back on track and seize the moment!

      Today is a Monday. I don't know about you but Mondays tend to be pretty crazy for me and my family. I am going to try and start off my week staying tuned into as many opportunities that come my way today!!!

      I hope you will join me!

        • Let me take this opportunity to send you a hug and a smile. It is a beautiful day here in Texas too, just a little too cold for my liking but no snow.

        • Thank God for his forgiveness, patience and love of us.
          He is just like us with our kids in that he gives us chance after chance after chance. Psalm 92:13 is my verse of the year.
          For you have been transplanted into the LORD‘S own garden and are under his personal care......what a thought!
          He personally is tending to your heart and soul and responsible for the growth there.....Peace to you all.estaticheart
