I’m so cranky right now I can’t even stand myself. Life went from this:
I know, I know. This happens every year where I live. Yeah, I know it’s natural and good. Each season has its gifts.
Sweater weather. Low humidity. Candy corn. (gift! gift! gift!)
Every year, though, I get older and watch my teen grow up and slightly more away. My dear mom needs more help. My knees ache and my shoulder is weird.
People I know die.
ME NO LIKEY.
Thank goodness I’ve been learning for a while what life’s true gifts are. Lots of books walk me through acceptance of life’s passages (AKA “going with the flow”) and appreciation of its gifts. One of them is The Tao Of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff.
