Ebb and Flow

I'm a single mom. I have two children under the age of 4, and every morning I get up WELL before the crack of dawn to shower and get dressed before the kids wake up and need breakfast, diaper changes, clothes, etc. It's tough. But lately, it's been getting a bit easier. I'm not as late to work as I usually am, and I've actually been making my own lunches and maybe even eating some breakfast before running out the door. The kids have been happier, I have been happier, and we're doing it.

The same can be said for the YOFL. I have money in the bank, now, and food in the pantry. Tomorrow is my day to fill up the car and I only need about a half a tank. Somehow it's getting easier, and it's amazing. It's only February 6th now, and I'm seeing a difference.

'Wild Geese'

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love
what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clear blue air, are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
(Mary Oliver)
