Seeing the forest for the trees
Sometimes when life gets hectic, it's hard to see the forest for the trees. Yesterday was like that. Busy beyond belief, but I wouldn't have changed a moment. There was Friday folders with old volunteer friends; true blue. Counting cans with a woman who donates not only hundreds of cans, but then counts those others donate; never to see a nickel of it. Generous to the very core of her being. Lunch with a soul sister. Thanks for the wonderful birthday honeymoon kick off feast. Parents who come over to pinch hit, and serve up pasta, in addition to taking over for the daily grind, and I'm not talking about coffee. Dear ones bearing gifts under the guise of knitting and tea. X Country buddies descending to eat pasta; filling the house with laughter. Lucky me, it is all good, all the time. And I wouldn't have traded yesterday for the world.
