I woke up to the sound of rain drizzling down. I sighed.
Our landlady and the bug guy decided that early morning was a good time to treat our house. Early enough that the baby would still be asleep.
And then? He showed up even earlier than scheduled. I wasn’t thrilled.
After all, one of THE rules of motherhood is you don’t wake up a sleeping toddler. And today, I had to get her up an hour early. I didn’t have a chance to do anything but grab her shoes and go outside.
But here is where it gets good.
Somewhere between the early morning drizzles and me rushing around trying to pull things away from the walls and then rushing my baby awake, the sun had come out. The last of autumn was glowing in all glory. It was warm. It was beautiful. I felt like I had stepped into something magical.
What I feared would be one of the worst mornings of my crazy week ended up being one of the best.
Charlotte had a blast. I walked around trying to soak in the joy and the glory and feeling awed at each new glimpse of beauty.
Thank you, Lord for redeeming ordinary and even annoying inconvenient moments and making them beautiful.
