The Joy and the Frustration
I’m joining with Mon as I reflect on the joys of our week along with its difficulties. The goal is not to complain or dedicate energy to the “negative,” but to acknowledge the significant events of the week from a place of understanding that every experience has something it can teach us, whether we see it is as a positive or a negative one.
Nausea, nausea, and more nausea.
Sudden difficulty coping, for both Annabelle and me.
Needing more sleep than usual, and more than I want to make time for.
Misrepresentations and media-created controversy.
A stomach bug and a whole lot of extra laundry.
The wiggles and movement that remind me of what’s to come.
Reconnecting, with smoothie dates and stress-melting park visits.
One last chance to enjoy the Department of Agriculture’s beautiful organic farm.
Reminders, and excuses to soak up the island life.
Quiet evenings and time for reading books.
