Ok today did not start off like I thought it would. I killed my blender. Yes an unfortunate household accident that involved a smoothie and an electrical short. By the time I realized that a small current of electricity was going through my body it was too late, my blender was dead. Lucky for me I had a handheld blender that came to the rescue. Even though 2 cups of apple juice made friends with my counter, my children started their day with delicious smoothies.
And then my day went on.......
I came home early from work to finish working from home......nope, my Internet was down. (Internet was fine router was killed in the recent storm) After an hour of reconfiguring and restarting the network in our home was back up. Then we move to my brand new phone. The wonderful Evo 4g from sprint. Can I tell you how many cuss words I used in a 30 minute period? No since it was well into the hundreds I should probably keep that to myself. I purchased the phone on Friday and now it has a mind of its own and we do NOT agree. So I am waiting for my fabulous sprint representative to be at work tomorrow at noon to replace this malfunctioning piece of dung for one that actually works.
My daughter informed me today that her friends' (twins) father passed away on Monday and she would like to go to his funeral tomorrow to support her friends. Now coming from a 13 year old that is very mature. We spent our evening shopping for clothing for her to wear tomorrow. So even though my day started out with a shock and continued with everything electrical that I touched breaking, I should not complain. There is a wonderful family that lost a wonderful man. A great provider, a loving husband and an outstanding father. My petty complaints have no room to be voiced when such a great tragedy has occurred.
I am sitting here with my daughter looking over my shoulder as I type this (first time for everything) and I must admit that anything that I went through today pales in comparison. I am thankful for each day I am given and each time I can check in on this blog. Who knows what each day holds. So live each day like it were your last.
Love like you have never loved before. Be kind to those who need it the most. Put your own problems in perspective.
