Equal Parts

Some days you lose the battle and eat 2 candy bars…. back to back… (before you wonder if I’ve gone off the chocolate deep end- they were fun size dark chocolate.. so maybe that’s not so bad..)

And some days someone -who shall remain nameless (but he makes a lot of noise in our house sometimes…)  ahem.. does the dishes for you..! (after one week without a dishwasher it was an unexpected but never unappreciated treat..!)

And some days that muscle in your neck that you tweaked by accidentally falling asleep on the loveseat in a not so orthopedic-ally correct position just will not quit aching and you find yourself having to consciously relax your shoulders from your ears twenty-two times a day… or maybe that’s just stress… I don’t know…

But then some days, some one prays for you.  And some days you get to take a walk with a friend. And some days there are sunsets like this one on Wednesday…

So maybe that’s the truth to be found… May we be able to equate our sufferings with equal amounts of joy– Let me be able to find one thing I’m grateful for in response to every complaint or sorrow… If I can only keep this balance…

Here’s to the weekend. Here’s to leaving our troubles of the week in the past and looking joyously into a hope filled future- no matter what it holds. Whether the glass is half empty or half full. God is in Control.
