Grouchy...given to mutter discontent.
Had a guy come in to my office the first thing this morning and when I asked him how he was doing he said "Look out, I'm grouchy".
Whoa! I could have easily gotten on my "band wagon" and preached to this young man that he was going to waste an entire day with that attitude. But instead I simply said we have choices about everything we do and say. I'm choosing to be happy, not worry. After he left I thought there is a relief in knowing that you can never control what another person does. I can't carry the burdens of other people, God does that for us. How cool is that? Sometimes I think the weather plays a big part in how some people's behavior is for the day. Today is one of those dreary, rainy, cold days and folks just tend to be grouchy. What a bummer. I'm not going to waste it. I'm happy!

NDRWJEven though it rained last night and it was cold this morning I wasn't grouchy as I played in the mist with my nine puppies. They loved the mist and oh WHAT FUN.
