Roller coaster day today.
Started out feeling strong and 'on task.' Did each thing as it appeared on the agenda, Began to run into roadblocks. Well, more like speed bumps.
Things I wanted to do that just seemed too difficult. Or overwhelming. Or exhausting. Didn't sleep well last night, forgot the caffeine this morning, and by about 4 o'clock it caught up with me. But I kept going. And thought I might even head out for some fun this evening on the water sailing with friends.
But I pulled the plug at the last minute (on my outing, not the boat's plug!)
Realized I was just too darn tired to be good company.
And then the phone rang.
A friend on the way to the emergency room. Not dire, but not good either.
I offered to go in so he wouldn't sit alone, because I know I wouldn't want to be there alone.
And my fatigue vanished. Because it suddenly didn't really seem to matter anymore.
I was just a little tired. He was lying there in a hospital bed. I could leave any time I wanted, come home, make my dinner, and spend my evening how I wished. He, on the other hand, is stuck there, waiting for test results.
Perspective. It's always there, if we just take a moment to look.
Whatever my personal worries or anxieties might be, there's always someone there to point out that my life is pretty charmed, actually.
He's okay. And I'm at home. All is well.
Keep your eyes open. You never know what blessings await.
