In a backwards, upside down world of chaos, it is easy and almost human nature to be a grumble pants. I realized this morning, it is a must for me to keep remembering the things I am thankful for- for praise is what makes this world a better place.
The Portal to Sanity
I am thankful for this shower.
For it is a place that big ideas happen
A place to gather thoughts
The best place for the hermit-at-heart.
Where unexpected and uninvited visitors knocking at my door cannot find me, where I don’t need to answer texts, where phone calls can be missed.
Where I don’t trip over toys and where I can’t hear children arguing.
Where I can be alone- (except for the occasional peeping child).
A place of solitude- until the hot water runs out.
A mini vacation, my place of peace.
Where I can take a deep breath and just BREATHE
Where there are no deadlines, no boxes to pack. No meals to make no dishes to wash.
A place of quiet- a place of rest.
A place where at one time the medical needs of a child didn’t allow me to be for many days of many months.
Today I can shower.
So thankful for this shower!
