Calming the Sunday Grouchies

I'll just say it.   Sunday is not my favorite day.  Have I said that before?  I know I say it to Mickey and my mom all the time and anyone who get's in my way on the dreaded day.  My biggest complaint is that I have to be a single mom for most of the day since Mickey's at meetings and visiting people.  It's not as bad as it was in the beginning but it's still not easy.

Sunday is the Sabbath.  A day to worship my loving Heavenly Father, to think about Jesus while I partake of the sacrament.  But for some reason I just can't be happy on that day.  I'm not the only one.  The child that's the most like me can be rather grouchy also, probably more so than me.  I didn't want this grouchiness to continue but I didn't know how to stop it.

A few months ago the leaders in Primary gave out a cd to all the kids with the songs for the yearly program.  I decided I would support them in their efforts to teach the songs and play it on the way to and from church.  Then a few weeks ago my mom mentioned something about it being the second week in a row that Mattey hadn't been grouchy during church.  I agreed with her.  As the weeks went by I noticed the trend seemed to hold.  I realized that I hadn't been very grouchy either.  I am giving all the credit to the cd, and the music on it.

A B.I.G. thank you to the ladies who put the cd together.
