When my kids were younger, taking them to church was a challenge. They were loud and moving about everywhere. When my children were very young, we first attended a church that had a crying room. Many of you will remember those rooms, stuffed with children who were running around as their parents chased after them and tried to control them.

Hi everyone! I hope that your day is going well. In fact, that is what I want to write about.

I want to be clear that I am not talking about depression, which is so debilitating, but just a random bad day.
