Rough morning but ready to rejoice

We had a rough start to our morning, Jericho and I. If you couldn't tell from the previous post I'm getting over mastitis, for the 4th time. Please be praying for me. This morning as I was feeding Jericho the other side, side that I don't have mastitis in, started to hurt and feel as if something might be brewing there. I'm really getting sick of the whole mastitis thing. I would really like to bre*stfeed Jericho at least until she is a year old if not longer but I'm starting to get a little discouraged. I really don't understand why I keep getting mastitis.

The fat lip Jericho got the other day is not completely healed. So far she has hit it on something twice already today. Both times it started bleeding all over again. It didn't help that this incidences happened within 10 minutes of each other. Jericho normally has dirty diaper in the morning but today she decided to have 2 within 30 minutes of each other. Not a big deal but it just adds to the annoyance of the morning. Plus, she has become an unhappy diaper changer. She used to love getting her diaper changed but these days there is to much to see, to much to do, no time for sitting still for a diaper change. She pretty much hates it and throw a fit almost every time I lay her down. I'm not even feeling guilty that Jericho was only up for 2 hours before I put her down for her first nap this morning. If she wouldn't have fallen asleep so quickly, it took her about 10 seconds, I might have. It seemed obvious that we both needed a break. It's only 9:30am and it's already been a long morning for both of us.

It's mornings like these that I need a reminder to rejoice.

So, today I leave you with a reminder.

A very simple reminder.

Psalm 118:24
"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
