And the Hits Just Keep on Coming
I keep waiting for some calm in our lives, but it doesn't seem to exist anymore. Our stress is as oppressive as a humid summer day. So much to do, so much happening, so much going wrong, so little in the checking account, it makes my head spin. I find peace in cuddles with the kids, in prepping meals for the critters, in goat kisses. Those simple actions take me away from the daily grind, the thought of what will go wrong next. I need to cherish the simple, look for joy throughout the day, leave this little pity party I keep having for myself.
My head swims most days with tough choices, second guesses; should I do this, was this right, why does every decision seem wrong. I'm blessed with an amazing man, who listens to my crazy, who brings the calm. He reminds me that not all of my decisions are wrong, but supports me through all of them. I am blessed with amazing children. They enjoy my crazy most of the time, it's given them the opportunity to commune with animals, build tepees in the woods, and be kids without technology. Granted there is a lot of technology in this house. I am blessed to live in an amazing home, nestled in the woods, away from the hustle of city life. Sometimes the hustle gets too close though. Cherish the quiet moments, look for beauty in the simple, take time for those I love; that alone will help me weather this current life storm.
