Monday mornings make me tired. I should wake up excited about a new week of possibilities and a new week of joy, but that's not how most Mondays roll around here.
We are all fussy and over-exhausted from weekend shenanigans; in denial that it is no longer party time. We all miss Daddy as he heads back to the job we'd spent three days forgetting he had. Laundry Beast flows out of the confines of her designated room, spreading far and wide throughout the house. Piled dishes from a weekend of short-on-time greet me and make me want to go right back to bed.
The children never get this memo because they're too busy mourning Monday in their own way.
Today, we're having cereal here, folks. Be cool.
I'm not serving Cheerios, Rice Krispies, and Frosted Flakes, but some great articles written by other writers that I respect. You'll love them. This is a clean and easy way to grab a bit of Monday fuel - with no fuss. Read the snippets or click on the links, either way, I think you'll leave full. Make it a joyful week!

Our best parenting practices are laced with sin, and so are our children’s most godly responses to our correction and training. So where does that leave us as we consider our parenting? It leaves us in the arms of our dear Savior, depending upon His grace, trusting in His providence working with and for our families in all our interactions, joys, and sorrows." Keep Reading...
*I would love to know if any of these articles "hit the spot" today. Comment below and let me know if you're feeling the "Mondays" too. Let's be joyfully great (in the gospel) together!
