Silver Lining

Today was a good day. This morning I fell down the attic stairs messing up my left butt and my back. This afternoon I died slowly during the interminable wait in a doctor’s office for my sister to have a tetanus shot – which never materialized.
BUT
I had a great workout with a great friend at the crack of dawn. I managed to shower before anyone else’s morning pee disturbed me. The children played well; they were helpful and didn’t try to make my head spin (more than once). Loan paperwork has been read, scrutinized, re-read, mailed. Last night I enjoyed lively and engaging conversation with a friend from across the country, and the after-glow lasted through today. Jessica helped me sort, purge, and pack a lot of stuff today. I hope my ambition will continue tomorrow when I tackle the eight bags of stuffed animals. I was able to help out a friend in a small yet useful way. Now, at the end of the day, I feel good like I accomplished something and made a divot of a difference in my corner of the world. We are preparing to embark on our life and it feels good. New breezes blowing and all that.
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
