Life has seemed intolerable, wading through miry muck.
Dealing with people’s written compositions that make little sense has been painful. Pulling random words out of a hat and assembling them on a page would have fared better. At least contradictory claims wouldn’t be paraded as arguments. Low expectations would be set. Maybe even a good laugh would be enjoyed.
Watching mayhem, small and large, anything from yelling and biting over small matters to raging and exploding anger on the road, has been exhausting.
Feeling like time has been elusive has been frustrating, to put matters mildly. Time hasn’t been just difficult to find. It’s gone. Disappeared like a fart in the wind, when so much still needs to be done.
But, some seemingly random gestures of love made me slam the brakes speeding toward a disastrous destination and turn toward brighter prospects –
- Being given a used copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, when doing so involved making a sacrifice on this particular giver’s part, moved me deeply. And, it was my first British copy in the series.
- Having a passing pedestrian walking his dog stop and help me change a flat tire out in the cold, wet air, warmed my heart.
So, life isn’t dark and dreary. There is hope and love freely given.
Where have you gotten stuck?
And, what has gotten you to change directions?
