forced-blessings


       i look at this garden.....
over-grown, messy, tired, unorganized, disappointed, sad, confused, heavy-hearted.
                                                         this is how i've been feeling lately.
worn.

.


i see these weeds and strawberry plants that have taken over
and i feel like i could just lay down there and they would cover me up in a day,
 and my troubles would just go away.




and then my 10 year old boy wakes me from my self pity to tell me that i'm pretty.
"even though you're standing outside taking pictures in your bra and underwear", he says. 
(at 7:00 on a sunday morning)
and i am forced again to see my blessings.
