How many hours are there in a day?

Well, it's Friday morning and another exciting adventure awaits me! Life's always an adventure when you're raising children! Homeschooling, piano practice, making meals, friends, concerts, and bible study all this weekend! WOO-HOO!!! What is the best way to start off with all this madness, I ask myself!!!! Well, first I need to keep the main thing the main thing- I need to spend some time with my Creator and my Savior! Once I have done that somehow my priorities seem to line up and I feel at peace because I know my life is in His hands! It puts a smile on my face and that makes my heart feel glad!!!!
Next, I write my list of things to do and start checking em' off....That's the FUN part! Are ya rolling with me? You get a sense of accomplishment that way! I always feel good at the end of the day when I actually see my to do list with a line through each item!
Now, the key to an even BETTER day is having a good attitude while I am checking things off...I have to choose to take time to smile and make my children laugh or notice special things they do. Am I living in the moment or is my mind always preoccupied? What about my thoughts, feelings, and actions- are they all working "together"???? That is HUGE!!!!
Just something to think about- hope you've been encouraged!
