I have loved Monday for a very long time. As strange as it is I love getting my house back in order and really clean after the weekend. I always thought it was a good way to begin my week, and if I missed a cleaning day my entire week was a mess.
Monday also became a good day to start random diets (like the one I plan on starting again tomorrow), or any other goal I thought of.
Monday was my fresh start to the week.
Today I had to be at church early and my family had not made it yet, I was sitting by myself while the Sacrament was passed and I was able to really think about what the Sacrament is.
Every week when we take the Sacrament we are renewing our baptismal covenants and our sins are forgiven, leaving us with a clean slate.
I realized at that moment that my week didn't start on Monday, my new week started right at that moment. I had been given a fresh start, a chance to make this week better than the last, and an opportunity to try again.
I resolved at that moment to do just that, to make this week better, to choose to have a good attitude, to try and do what he wants me to do, to be a great example, and most important the best mom and wife I could be.
It has been a rough couple of weeks mixed with lots of good and bad, I am grateful for all of it, but at the same time I am ready to put it all behind me.
I am so grateful for the fresh start I am given every Sunday, and especially for today's, it was just what I needed!!
