When Mommy Gets Grouchy in the Middle of the Night

"Mommy, I wet the bed."

Grumble, grumble, grumble.  Mommy thinks to herself, (sarcastically), "No problem.  I'll just throw all the wet clothes and sheets in the wash along with the dirty towels that I used to clean the bathroom floor when the toilet overflowed.  While I'm at it I'll throw in Kaylah's wet pants and panties that she wet after I had done all the laundry.  Then I'll get so awake giving you a bath and changing your sheets that I won't be able to go back to sleep and I will be sooo tired in the morning."

Why do I act like I'm dying?  I just need to be thankful!

Thankful that I have a little boy to come wake me up in the night.
Thankful that I have clean sheets to put on his bed.
Thankful that we have a bathtub to give him a bath.
Thankful that we have a toilet to overflow.
Thankful that I have a little girl and that she is learning to go on the potty.
Thankful that I have a washing machine to put all the dirty things into.
Thankful that I have a bed to get back into (and that I have a wonderful husband who is keeping the sheets warm.)
Thankful that all 3 kids normally sleep very well through the night.
And on and on and on I could go.

Thank you Lord for reminding me to be thankful!  I have absolutely no right to be grumbling about something so trifling.

Thank you Lord for your blessings!

Thank you for this reminder. I find myself grumbling too over such truly trifling things...I wonder if I'll ever learn... :)

Ahhh, yes. SO HARD sometimes to be thankful in the middle of the night!
