Two different antibiotics sit on the counter.
Two more antibiotic creams.
Echinacea and cold remedy bottles.
Plus vitamin C and D to round out the counter display.
And I only have three children!
I have an embroidery guy that promised me shirts last Friday who didn’t even have the shirts started today.
And today I have my oldest say that he thinks our dog “is feeling something, maybe sad!” Yup, he’s right. She has hurt her leg.
My middle son, sadly, lost his very best pair of ski gloves. We spent time searching the playground and the school lost and found, but to now avail. But I have one very sad little boy.
In thirty-six hours, I am going to be fortunate to share GreenTeaHAWAII in Vtown’s hockey arena, where I used to live.
Trying to coordinate mommy going to ‘work’ for two whole days and evenings has taken a small army of help to coordinate.
I can’t comprehend my mindset.
Trying to prepare to do something for the FIRST time.
And I am not even freaking out.
I feel peace.
I feel gratitude.
I see such beauty around me.
(Even driving down the road.)
Amidst the messiness of daily life,
I feel great love for all that I have, all that I can do, my given family, my chosen family, my community and my God.
We are living in a fear-filled, chaotic time.
But, I see beauty everywhere.
I feel overflowing waves of gratitude EVERY day, all day.
Maybe I am out of my mind!
