Reasons I am spent

  • short staffed
  • hosting a big presbytery event
  • prepping for two different classes this week
  • wedding and a funeral this weekend
  • 2nd grade homework 🙂
  • study that STILL isn’t finished

Reasons I am grateful

  • the sound of my brother’s voice on my answering machine
  • the feel of K2’s hand on mine as I sat next to her watching her sleep and feeling her heart beat
  • friends who send care packages with all my favorites
  • picturing my friends shoveling cement in Las Manzanas, Honduras
  • a great cup of coffee
  • the challenge of each day

keep open, oh keep open, my eyes, my mind, my heart… Herman Hagedoorn
