We are starting to settle into new rhythms. It's still hard, and filled with as many lows as it is highs. I feel good that we're doing the right thing, though.
I spent most of this week feeling alternately guilty and grateful for things I previously took for granted: our laundry machines, our dishwasher, the privacy of the backyard, getting delivery groceries, and someone to share the days with. I am NEVER gonna take any of this for granted again.
I've decided to give myself some grace with the guilt, and to do what I can to help others as I'm able.
This weekend, I hope to get started on some embroidery, and enjoy the spring weather out in the backyard. And feeding a new sourdough starter...
I hope that wherever you are, you're able to find your own grace with your situation, and that these things below give you a bit of joy in a dark time.
