Today is Another Day.

And when night comes, and you look back over the day and see how fragmentary everything has been, and how much you planned that has gone undone, and all the reasons you have to be embarrassed and ashamed: just take everything exactly as it is, put it in God’s hands and leave it with Him. Then you will be able to rest in Him -- really rest -- and start the next day as a new life. --Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

Yes, today is a new day ... yesterday is I will try better...with the grace of God.
And maybe I will even get some sleep tonight!
