1. This is a tough one. This has been a very challenging week, with each new hurdle turning into a series of hurdles for me and everyone I love. We are stressed out and exhausted, and it’s going to be a very long road. I appreciate everyone who has been so supportive recently, and for now I’m just trying to take things one day at a time.
2. Sleep. Sleep is a good thing, and I am very grateful for the hours that I get to sleep deeply and restoratively, before waking way too early to bad dreams and large to-do lists.
3. Routine, which makes it easier to keep moving forward. Knowing one small step I can take next, because it’s the same thing I’ve done the last 50 Sundays, makes it possible to take that step, and then another, and then another. It doesn’t feel like much, but when it’s all you’ve got, you grab on tight and keep a hold of it.
