Endless frustration here and there
Jobs never done
The house a mess
Limited smiles crossing my face
Constant rain, wetness, lack of sunshine
For the past three days I've been unable to find my happy. I have love, but the happiness and joy have escaped. My temper has been short. My usual amount of 'let them be kids' attitude vacant. Enjoying the small moments nonexistent.
This morning I woke up with a headache. I exercised anyway. I thought it would help. Get my blood pumping in the right direction again. I hated today. I hated this morning. I hated myself.
The middle one pushing every button and taking me deeper into the hell I've been feeling. Then it was clear.
The runny nose
The constant whining
The swollen, red eyes
The aching ear
He didn't feel good either.
While the sink was full and crumbs littered the floor we molded into the chair together. Just him and me. In the middle of a beautiful, full of sunshine day we napped together. It was as if I was plugged into the wall. My battery recharged. I awoke with that happiness again. The patience renewed. The pain finally gone. Thank goodness for forgiveness. For recharging. For sunshine. For the decision to sit back and take it slow no matter the state of the environment around me.
