Today was a total Monday.  I hate to beat up on Monday, because it really can’t help being just a day on the calendar.  But today fit the classic description of a “Monday”.

Sitting here tonight, I was letting it get to me.  After all the things of today; finding more problems in this house was just enough to push me to the edge.

I sat down at my desk.  I put my head in my hands and prayed.  I don’t know how to make this less stressful.  And it was one of those moments where an answer came.  Mind you, I pray a lot without hearing a thing.  And I don’t know what God sounds like audibly.  But tonight, in my spirit I heard, “Stop trying to do everything yourself”.

Truth.  Why do I always try to do everything myself!?  I am even annoying myself with this!! I took another few minutes and prayed a little more.  Of course I’m not alone, yet my initial thoughts are always to forge ahead myself.  I asked God for help first.  I immediately felt more calm.

Then, I shot out a couple emails, one with an instant reply of help.  (P.S. I know a terrific handyman service if anyone ever needs one!)  I’m taking some of these projects off my list and getting help.  Sure, I could do more of it myself; but at what cost?

Tonight I am thankful that today is ending soon.  I am thankful for help to get some immediate projects done.  And I am thankful that tomorrow is a new day.  And a new day to remember that I don’t have to try to do everything by myself!
