Uh-oh. I've caught the Mid-Summer Blahs.
I'm tired of the same ol' sunny days (blasphemy, I know).
I'm tired of my garden (it can go to seed for all I care).
I'm tired of yellow squash (and we've only eaten one-and-a-half out of hundreds).
I'm tired of mosquitoes, yard sales, pulling weeds and slapping Japanese Beetles into buckets of soapy water.
Or maybe I'm just tired.
But here's one thing I know: This, too, shall pass.
And in the meantime I'll forgive the less-than-great circumstances in my life, lest my head suffer from that serotonin thing again (heaven forbid). I'll mix things up a bit and not spend so much time home alone, doing the same ol', same ol'. I'll reach out and touch others with kindnesses. And I'll spend additional time with the One who has the wisdom to direct me out of this nameless, faceless cloud, step by step...
...and add a shot of real coffee to my hot chocolate. :)
And as long as I don't panic and make life-altering-for-the-bad decisions, all will be well again. Life will be sweet, laughter will live close to the surface and the simplest things will inspire me.
Thank-Goodness for that.
