I got to thinking about stress & reactions - I'd like to be a person people see as 'rolling with the punches' - you know? Someone who can get back up when things go wrong, and be back on their feet doing what needs to get done. I'd like to be someone who can take the problems and act to fix them, not recoil or regress from them. I'd like to be the person that everyone thinks of as working even harder when the going gets tough; of seeing the positive side of things and being encouraging even in the worst of it... I'd like to.
Now I think I'm drained though, and I need to go climb into my bed, of which I just put on fresh clean flannel sheets, and read. Some 'me' time. I have an early morning ahead of me; even earlier now with the car's "to do" (Aurora needs to do her homework in the morning now, instead of evening, and I need to do my evening chores in the morning too - a bit of a push back on the schedule again; I guess that's adaptation.)
Book. Sleep. Worry more tomorrow. Or not.
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now ... here he comes!
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young
Can we climb this mountain
I don't know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let's take it easy
Easy now, watch it go"
