Advice from my 4 Year Old

 I ran out of gas this morning on the way to work. Yeah. I know. I completely forgot I was supposed to get gas yesterday. It was too late. Too cold. Too dark. And I was too tired Saturday night on my way home.  Completely side-tracked until I got in the car this morning and UGH!!!

Wait…it gets better…..

On my lunch break I had to stop off at my oldest son’s school to drop off a permission slip and lunch money, headed back to work I get a flat tire…not just a flat tire…completely busted no longer usable pull car over and do not pass go tire. Wonderful.

Park car, call husband, let him deal with it, and get a co-worker to pick me up. Enjoy the free wi-fi in the Lowe’s parking lot (heads up – many now offer it to their customers – appreciate that!) while I wait.

Husband picks me up, later drops me off to car with tire already replaced (note to self – remember this next time I’m ready to throttle him for who knows what) and I go pick up my youngest two.  We get home and I trip in the garage – enter tears because this is the absolute culmination of my day. My wonderful 4 year old son looks at me and sings:

Just Keep Swimming: Words of Wisdom From A Four Year Old

I couldn’t do anything but laugh. He looked so sincere and concerned. Amazingly those were the first words that came to his mind to console his mother and they were absolutely right on time.

Life happens. Bad days happen where it seems everything can and will go wrong does. But we have to keep moving, we have to keep swimming, we have to press forward.

Having a great support system in place to lift you up, come to your rescue and remind you that you need to continue to press forward makes a world of a difference.
