Scott said to me today, "I am really happy with our home, our family and our life." I coughed in response. I have been sick all week and most recently a lovely cough and earache have added themselves to my myriad of miserable symptoms. I can barely hear anything because of the ear infection. But, truly, what have I got to complain about? My life is LUSH compared to many, yet I find myself a little melancholy today, the day before Easter.
Easter comes as a celebration for Christians of a risen Lord, a time for joy and rebirth, a time to take stock and clean up before Spring is sprung and the heat of summer swelters. But here I am sitting at the computer feeling melancholy.
I finished some projects and took a bath, but still felt melancholy.
I tried to rest on the couch, but Caden called, so I fed him and he slept for a little while and daddy had the other kids in the garage...still melancholy.
Then it hit me. I have been looking forward to something for a long time. I have been looking forward to Spring Break...and it's almost over!!! And there are no more holidays for Scott for a loooong time. It's that feeling that the happiness is almost over that is tugging at my mind and heart. So, I better get out of this funk and go do something fun before our time is up!
No more moping. I think I'll go get some Easter basket goodies for the kids and help my hubby in the garage. Oh, and it sucks to be on a diet during Easter time. OK, Lord, I'm sorry for my pity party. Back to the grind, with a joyful heart and a better attitude!
