mama said there'd be days like this



some days i wake up with a chip on my shoulder,
but
most days i'm just grateful for another day of sunshine.

some days i think i'm a pretty lame mom,
but
most days i remember to just have fun, love 'em like crazy & do my best.

some days i feel defeated by my chubbiness,
but
most days i have hope for a healthier tomorrow.

some days i'm pretty sure i have no life,
but
most days it's obvious that i'm living my dreams.

some days i feel like the messes never end,
but
most days i just [know] that the messes never end & i'm okay with it.

some days all i can notice are the used, stained, and broken things,
but
most days i'm completely content with my cozy, loved, fingerprinted life.

some days i curse money, bills, and necessary expenses,
but
most days i just have faith that the lord will always provide enough.

somedays i am ready to check myself into the looney bin,
but
most days i can recognize & appreciate god's sense of humor.

some days i daydream about having a fashionable & fancy wardrobe,
but
most days i'm cool with just having a sweet spirit.

some days i'm a little freaked out by the unknown details of the future,
but
most days i remember that things have a way of working out.

some days are kinda crappy.
but
most days are just really, really, really happy.
