Thankful Thursday: Peace Among Us

Howdy, strangers.

It’s feels like it’s been forever, but it’s actually only been 3 days since my last post. Life gets so hectic and I get lost in the jumble of it all.

But, rest assured, I am still alive and kicking with maybe a little less pep in my step. It’s been a rough few days for me. Nothing has made much sense and the kids have been a bit owly.

However, the sun continues to shine and today looks more promising.

Anywhoo, as I said, the last few days have been kind of bummer days. I wasn’t really feeling the holiday celebration so I didn’t do a whole lot. I stayed home for most of it. My hubby and my kiddos did go out a do a few things and ended the evening on July 4th with a few fireworks at our home. The transition from being a working mom back to a stay home is kicking my butt yet again. I just need to find my groove 🙂

I missed Wednesday Mass this week which always throws me off as well.

The days have been busy with what feels like appointment after appointment. Any time I have to drive to town it’s an all day endeavor and by the time I get home, the day is gone which adds to my anxiety. It’s weird.

The other day I got to spend most of the day with my mom which always makes me feel better. In fact, I was feeling so anxious that day, I didn’t want to go home, but I did.

However, after almost a full day in town yesterday and a weariness from that excursion, a storm blew in shortly after we arrived home. The winds came up so high that the trees were bent over just about touching the ground, streaks of lightening flashed across the sky, and booms of thunder almost shook the foundation. My husband and I stood in the garage doors, looking out to watch the fury of the storm. He noticed the water overflowing the gutters and had to find the problem. So, in the middle of that ferocious storm, he was unclogging the gutters. And, ahoy, at last the water rushed out after the debris had been removed. Soon it began to change from a gush of water to a minimal, free flowing stream of water once again.

I am thankful for the calm after the storm. With all the anxiety I have felt over this week, the storm somewhat settled the anxiousness within myself.
