It has been one of those days. We all have them. You feel like it would be better if you stayed in bed, but you do not have the luxury of such. It is a day when you feel like nothing you do is right for you or your family. We have to get through them though. We have to focus on what needs to be done, whether it is washing a floor, cooking a meal or just helping your child with some homework and doing the right thing by them.
To make matters worse, your child complains that he cannot sleep because of the traffic noise at night. There is nothing you or I can do about that. We cannot make the traffic stop unless we move out to the country and live on the outskirts of a country town. Then there are other disadvantages of isolation but maybe we are both bits of loners. He with his cars and once he learns to read properly he will become absorbed.
The high point was our walk to the park today and finding out that the pond where we go to feed the ducks and geese has had the “Do Not Feed The Birds’ sign removed and it is chockers full of carp or yellow belly fish. I want to find out if we can fish there. There were so many fish in a huge school looking for bread crumbs in the water from the ducks and geese.
Time to say some tehillim.
