A Better Day, Tomorrow

In my desk drawer, I found a card that a dear friend made for me. I’m so glad I never sent it away.

I needed these words on Tuesday. I found these words Thursday. I will keep them front and center if I have a day like Tuesday again.

Last week was my birthday. I decided to celebrate all week long. Small moments each day filled my heart with joy. It continued through the weekend and then Tuesday arrived.

It was dreary, no sunshine to recharge my internal solar battery. I ached. I was out-of-sorts. I don’t usually have that kind of day. I hoped that in the morning I would wake up with a better attitude.

I did.

Don’t you have a story to share?

  1. I read this and I KNOW I commented…was it just in my mind? I remember making that card. I never imagined it would come back around all of these years later. I was touched that you wrote such a brave post. I don’t like to think about you having sad days, but I supposed you ARE human…even if in my mind you seem like a superhero!
    Lots of hugs,
    Ruth

    • You commented orally during the zoom meet. 🙂 I thought Christy made the card, so I’m glad to know it was from you. I still look at it and hold those words close to my heart. The others in the set are just as important. Perhaps they will appear in a post on another day. 🙂

    “It was dreary, no sunshine to recharge my internal solar battery.” – after a fabulous birthday week a day like this can hit hard. The day passed. I hope this weekend has had sunshine and joy to rest and recharge.

  3. It is brave to share this. I appreciate that you did. It is helpful to know we all go through these kinds of days! Some days we just have to persevere through. Thankful you did and your words will serve me the next time a “Tuesday” passes my way.

    So thankful for those two little words: “I did.” I’m glad your birthday week sounded beautiful, and that your Tuesday is done!

  5. Birthday weeks are the best! And no good, very bad days will pass. But it doesn’t feel like they will in the moment. Love those final words – I did!
    So glad to hear your story today. I think I have a card like yours . . . somewhere . . .

    I have often found that my attitude is what makes a day good or bad. Glad that Wednesday gave you a new perspective and attitude! Happy belated birthday!
