    Smile think back on the day so far

    "It's too bad that your mother ends up with the work when you're the one out in the street brawling. And a minister's son at that."
    He thought back on the day so far.He added one to the number of things in it that were almost more than God had any right to expect of him.

    The sentences above is the part of a novel. I can't fairly understand the underlined part. Please help!!!

    Re: think back on the day so far

    He believes that God expects him to pull through each day, the best way he can. But today, as he thought back on it (recalled all that happened to him), was particularly difficult. Every step was a challenge, and he laments that his burden is harder than God should expect him to carry.
