One weed at a time

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.
