6-25-15


Since last week, I've been overwhelmed by allergies.... and yes, I am taking everything I can for it.
One of the hazards of having a suppressed & wonky immune system, is that it doesn't work when you need it to... and it goes into hyperdrive for no reason apparent sometimes.
Suffice it to say, that now I probably have both a sinus infection and bronchitis.... and even though it's summer outside; I am not.
It's been rough... but it's just one-of-those-things.
Moving on.

I mention this only in the context of self care.
Sometimes, stuff happens.... and we have to just stop and take care of ourselves.
Other stuff needs done... the dishes languish in the sink... the laundry builds up... things need dusted (sneeze)...it's ok.
Life is short... and sometimes you just have to grin at it all and keep moving.

Take the photo for today's post.
Super cute, super tiny baby grasshopper probably was astounded at this big, hulking, sniffling, sneezing,
mucous-y beast (me) looming over him... and yet... he sang. He sang sweetly.
He didn't waiver from his singing... and he didn't hop away in fear.
Some days... grasshopper.... you just need to sing and carry on.

--see you all tomorrow.
