While the world seems to crumble, there are simple benchmarks being kept in my world. I was never any good at dribbling in basketball. I really just couldn't do it all at the same time. For now, I've kept up with the game. No 'three-pointers', but I've stayed in, with only a few time-outs. No technicals, no fouls, I've made it from base-line to base-line and managed to not stand out. Word.
Epic cold weather hovers over the day-- bliss. The wood stove warms the whole of the room. I am content.
Thanksgiving is not coming too soon, nor too late. Right on time. The time off from busy-ness for both kids and consequently myself, arrives. Nine days of unplugging. No not in the literal sense, but disengaging the alarm, perhaps even travel to Nannie and Grandpas.
This article of real answers gave me hope last night. Purpose to the need to 'judge'. Judge for oneself and for our prodigy what is noble and good, right and pure.
Today, praying that I won't 'time-out.'
Thankful for firewood, windows to see, Psalm 146, the Gettysburg Address, friends, family. My husband. Lifemeds for me. Never stop counting.
