Bad Mood Morning

I just woke up in a bad mood this morning.  GP and I don't see eye to eye on our current transportation situation (9 vehicles and not one under 150,000 miles), I have been out of town so much that there is a list of chores a mile long, and I read a few emails before getting out of bed that set me off (not sure reading my messages before I get my first cup of coffee is a good idea).  I was running late, didn't have the right keys with me when I got to the barn....but paused, to hear the most amazing tune from the wind chimes.  Usually these chimes will strike one or two notes at a time and have a very clear sound...but today it was a symphony.  I looked around and thought there wasn't even much of a breeze stirring...then thought is this God/Mom telling me to take a moment and remember every thing I have to be thankful for?  It worked....much better mood now.  Having a great day at work and listening to a little Christmas music over my laptop.  Love this time of year, and I don't want to waste even one hour feeling like this guy.

God can come in so many forms, even through a windchime when you least expect it~ oh, how I love thinking about this! Have a wonderful afternoon.

Just when we need to hear His music most...it's amazing, really amazing.

Having the ears and heart to perceive God/mom wisdom is such a grace... As is your sharing of this story of transformation. And honestly, that photo speaks volumes! I laughed right out loud... I recognize that look... I have seen it as in my mirror.

I have to tell myself not to sweat the small stuff either --- 9 cars might not seem so small, but I'm glad that you can listen to the chimes and look on the bright side!
