Star Light, Star Bright . . .

. . .  First Star I See Tonight.
Wish I May, Wish I Might,
Have This Wish I Wish Tonight.

It’s been a rainy, ugly day here in PA (or at least in the part in which I live).  I don’t even see any stars in the sky tonight; but a girl can wish anyway, right?

If I were to wish upon a star tonight, I think I’d wish one of two things:

(1) To rewind this day back to yesterday and start all over; hoping, of course, that it turns out differently than this day did, or

(2) Fast forward to tomorrow, in the hopes that I’ll wake up in the morning and discover that today was just a dream.

Or possibly a third wish would be even better:

(3) To just skip over the next 30 days and find myself in Walt Disney World.  While this option certainly sounds the best, I don’t want to wish away the next 30 days of planning and dreaming and counting down (because that stuff is half the fun of the whole Disney experience for me).

Anyway, today just didn’t turn out the way I would have planned if I were in charge of things.  But, we all have those days sometimes, don’t we? 

What do you do when you have a bad day?  I tried soaking in a warm bath, while reading a good book, drinking a yummy coffee, and smelling a cherry candle.  I followed it up with some prayer.

Heidi- the end of your post is perfect.  "I followed it up with some prayer."  Too many times I try to make my bad days/ moments go away with the type things you listed: warm bath, good book, coffee, chocolate, etc and there is a temporary "fix" but things don't start turning around until I give it to God.  I have to remind myself of that often- too often!  Know I'm on your side and I'm praying for you!  Love!
