One of THOSE Days


It started with no coffee. 
None. 
Zip.
So I jumped in my vehicle and headed to the shop
and
had to drive around a dead skunk
at the end of my driveway. 

I should have gone back to bed. 
It did not get better. 

Disappointed 
in a friend's behavior
that really hurt my feelings. 
I should have thicker skin by this point in life, I guess. 

But I am still counting my blessings, 
time with some of my grandchildren...
well spent. 

Those little arms around your neck 
a little boy laying in your arms in his blanket
"color with me, Mamaw"
are all the healing 
a heart needs!

And the ladies in the picture?
A yard sale find for $1! 
A pair just like that hung in our living room 
throughout my entire childhood...

I could not pass them up!

I've had those days myself, but the blessings waiting at home really are a comfort aren't they?

Grandbabies make everything better. Always! Too bad we can't spend all our time with them isn't it?
