right now

Good morning.  If I could sum up the past week it would be overflowing with apples, dealing with some difficult issues with my extended family, and round two (or is it three?) of the stomach virus for my little ones.

Just when I started to look up to heaven and ask "why" the other day, I realized I knew why.  This stuff always humbles me and slows me down.

So here I am this morning, holding a different, sick child in my arms from the night before, wondering when life will resemble something a bit more enjoyable.  And asking myself the common motherly question of, "What more can I do?"

And so life goes on.

 Tomorrow, happily, I'll be focusing on one of the good things going on around here...
