Perspective

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...

Hope you are feeling better soon! It's not good for "mom' to be sick, too many people depending on us...
Blessings, Patti
