It has been a long week.
Nothing particularly hard or intense or bad,
just what has felt very looooong.
Most likely it has felt that way because I fought, then caught the cold that the kids have been germy with for awhile now.
But life still continues to go on, even when Mama has a cold, so I carry on.
Weeks such as this, I easily become engrossed in the mundane,
just plodding through the laundry, bills, grocery shopping.
Finally, a step out my doors, stepping away from the chores, even if for a few moments to capture the beauty of Creation around us...
A deep breath, a sigh, ahhhhhhhhh...
