I am a mom, a wife, a lover of God and my family, a friend, a naturalist and environmental educator, a writer, a crunchy granola, a reader, thinker, scrapbooker, journeyer - not necessarily in any order.
This evening I have been scratching my brain trying to figure out my entry for the day. I thought about how I am feeling tired and weak and daunted about the week ahead. Then I thought about how relieved I feel because I have some friends coming to help me with the kids this week as I recover from surgery. When I admit I am weak and need help, and when someone offers help and I take them up on that offer, I receive more than just the help. I also receive peace. Perhaps not everything will get done this week, and I know I am in for some trying moments, but I am grateful because my life is full of people who want to help me. I am so fortunate. I hope I can focus on my gratitude and not my grumpiness tomorrow!
