I was pulling weeds (or picking weeds as my kids call it) & had plenty of time to think yesterday evening.
It was very hot and there were a lot of weeds.
I mean a lot.
I got discouraged when I looked at the enormous area I was working on that was seemingly covered in weeds.
But then I discovered that if I kept my head down and focused on what was right at my feet it wasn’t so overwhelming.
Pull out what was right in front of me & move on.
Callie joined me for a a little while with her Paw Patrol shovel.
She wasn’t there long, but she was helpful & I appreciated her presence.
Life is like pulling weeds for me sometimes.
I can easily get overwhelmed when I think about being 45 and having kids just entering kindergarten.
I have 13 more years of school y’all.
I get overwhelmed when I think about only having 3 more years with Emma before she begins to leave the nest.
But like those weeds, if I take it one day at a time, maybe even one moment at a time, it’s not so overwhelming.
And I have friends & family , like Callie, who will walk beside through different seasons.
I thank God for these little blessings that at times overwhelm me.
But I’m learning to take it as it comes.
Moment by moment.
Day by day.
You are loved.
