I grabbed a book today, not that there is any free time to read it. I just wanted to escape. Feel free for a minute. Forget the world that feels like it's crashing down around me.
I read the first three pages and I was bored. So much for that.
I guess, really, I don't want to escape. I just want to slow down. Breathe easy. Let my heart slow down for just a minute. Relish in the good, where I can find it.
But it's all around, isn't it? Despite the bad, the ugly, the horrible. There is good. Lots of it.
Smiles. Cuddles. Hugs. Husband making dinner. A few extra minutes of sleep in the morning. Clean clothes. A fresh roll of toilet paper when I thought we were out (SCORE!). Toys on the floor. Smiley faces on homework assignments. Blankets pulled up tight. Heartfelt, thoughtful comments on facebook. Little baby kicks.
It's all good.
