Looking at life from the sofa
I'm finding getting the everyday stuff of life accomplished each day a bit like running on sand. Only nine more antibiotic pills to take... sigh. There is much hope that I'll feel better once they get completely out of my system. I love the word HOPE so much that it has been spelled out with Scrabble tiles on my breadbox for a long time. :)
As the "catch up-to do" list gets longer each day, I have been taking advantage of sofa time to watch the Winter Olympics. While the Summer Olympics have never held my attention, there is something about the events in Winter that I love to watch. Not to mention the scenery there in Vancouver. I had no idea the mountains were so beautiful.
Isn't it fun to learn the stories behind each person? I'm sure there were many of us holding our breath last night as the Chinese husband and wife team skated their final performance and rejoiced with them when they won gold... all because we learned of their story. :)
I wonder if the "great cloud of witnesses" lean over the balcony of Time and rejoice with us as we keep going in spite of the trials and tribulations of life. Each of us has a Story.
Sigh... I continue to be way behind on most e-mails (especially those which require thinking) as well as writing anything which requires putting one thought after another (like the next pantry post). I do have hope...
