|Dandelion in the Dew|
I receive Modern Mrs Darcy's Newsletter and she had a quote in there that asked, " What is Saving You." Well I think all these below are saving me this month.
Sometimes truth comes in the form of a tea bag. I have been enjoying the Sweet and Spicy Tea by Good Earth. They have quotes on their tea bag tags. The one below spoke to me.
I was reminded by my Mother about my 18 minute speech. When I was in the Army, we had to complete the 2 mile run in 18 minutes. I am not a runner and was not a runner then. I would always tell myself I can do this difficult thing for 18 minutes. It is only 18 minutes. I guess I needed to relearn this mental mind set this month.
Sometimes, I crave easy. And over and over, I learn I wasn't built for easy. My month has been a constant reminder how difficult my life is sometimes -complicated by IEPs, Insurance woes, middle school angst, busy husband, complicated scheduling, RAIN. I was built to challenge, overcome, and struggle. I actually said to myself," I am on the right track if things are hard." If there was no resistance, there would be no reward. I pretty sure the rest of world doesn't think this way.
