mr. Seth

I’m not feeling all that great day. I’ve done a lot of moaning, groaning, writhing, and crying and a lot of nothing else. A lot of just being on the couch under blankets, and a lot of wearing of sweatpants, thick socks, and a sweatshirt. I’m not looking for sympathy, just saying…..days like this are meant to be used. For what, I have no idea. I mean, God gave us these capabilities for a reason, I’m sure. The teapot makes very dreadful sounds and lets off wet stuff, too, into the air, when it boils. So maybe that’s what I am doing. I know my heart stops aching for a while after a good cry. I want to be honest and true. I”m not all susie sunshine happy meeeeee I just love every minute of life isn’t it just grand? No one is. And gosh dang it I’m going to say so on the blog.

Today, I am sick.

……..but, guess what?

A package came in the mail from Aunt Colleen with two wonderful books and a most wonderful “thinking of you” note. Yep, cried (thankful)

AND Andre, the photographer, messaged me these two photos on Facebook.

I opened them, and cried again (why is mr Seth growing so fast and oh he is so handsome and I can’t wait to give him a hug in 20 minutes when the bus finally brings him home).

  1. You said “dang.” (HeeHee.)

    I’m not sick, and I’m just sitting around today. We finally got our snow. It’s just a dusting, but it’s cold and miserable out there. The chickens don’t even want to come out.

    Books are an awesome gift! It sounds like people are piling on the love! How blessed you are. 🙂

    Seth is, indeed, growing like a weed. All of your children are! I remember when he was a toddler (on your blog.) …and all of them are beautiful.

    On days where I feel bad or unmotivated, and I’m feeling guilty, Bud always tells me to just rest… that there is a reason, and God knows it, so don’t worry about it. Maybe there is one person who will read what you wrote and it will change their life. Maybe that hug that you are going to give Seth will be one that he remembers for the rest of his life. Maybe you’ll read something life-changing in one of those new books. Today sounds like a perfect day to dig into them. 🙂

    Hope you are feeling better soon.


  2. You are so right. Today was a good day for me. Often I find myself feeling a bit down in the late afternoons, especially now that I’m usually home by myself. This week I had a grand-daughter and her family over one evening, and the next night my daughter and her family came. I like to cook for others, but don’t enjoy cooking for myself.
