And Tomorrow is a New Day

Today was a busy day of getting kids to and from camps, making meals, meeting with friends who are in crisis, and loving on foster babies….and tomorrow is a new day. Each day I wake wanting to press forward and give my all to my family and friends…and yet I go to bed feeling like it wasn’t enough. I often lay in bed at night thinking about the next day and all of the things on the schedule and somehow drift off to sleep for a few hours. Life has thrown some unseen twists and curves lately and I’m having to process things with the understanding that today is full of emotion….and tomorrow is a new day.

My best friend lost her dad to suicide. No one saw it coming. I was busy organizing my kitchen when she called and I didn’t get to the phone in time. She called again a little later and I was able to answer. It was heart breaking to hear her shattered words of sorrow and shock. The pain is still too much to think about…. and tomorrow is a new day.

I have had two little foster babies to love on. They are both precious as can be. Beautiful and thriving. I love snuggling them and talking to them about their bright future. They throw me curve balls with endless poops, spitting up, and 2am wake up calls….I love it… and tomorrow is a new day.

Each day is a gift. Tomorrow is a new day. Today might be full of sorrow, pain, or exhaustion…but tomorrow is a new day… a fresh start… another page in the book of life. I’m thankful for the past few chapters and I anticipate the next ones to come. I hope they are filled with joy and peace and memories and so much love for those in my life.

Tonight I go to bed thinking about the little sweetpea that gets his forever family tomorrow and the joy that they will experience when they meet him for the first time, I think about the marriage retreat that hubby and I are leading this weekend, and I worry about my kids who are not going with us…, I think about the people in my life who I love and pray that they know how much I care about them and wonder if I should say more or do more… I am exhausted…and tomorrow is a new day.
