A homerun’s coming, Mom…

It’s been kind of an overwhelming week here – still trying to handle this drought, this phone’s been dying after only minimal use, and a TON of tasks have been started, but nothing completed… 😦 Ever feel like you are going backwards??

As I was trying to get breakfast this morning, it seemed like I just kept hitting road blocks – no clean counterspace to work on, pot I wanted to use was dirty, favorite spatula was missing – I let out a big SIGH & Michael heard me. “What’s wrong, Mom?” he asked. “Well, Michael – it just feels like I keep ‘striking out’ with everything today!” He didn’t “bat” an eye – looked at me and said, “Don’t worry, Mom, a homerun’s coming!!!” Lol, lol πŸ™‚

Wasn’t that a nice thing to say?

Thank You, Lord, for sending me encouragement from my son – a quick & fun pick-me-up! πŸ™‚

Still was a rough day, but I had that moment to reflect on, and it made me smile. πŸ™‚

Oh – and my “homerun”? It DID come: An evening walk alongside my best friend. Mike & I admired the beautiful sky, the cooler temp, cleared fencelines, & spent time lovin’ some calves + my favorite old cat, Blake.

Beautiful. πŸ™‚

I think it was more like a “grand slam”!
AMEN

    Thank you for that. Your son not only encouraged you but he encouraged me too. Some days just don’t start out right and it feels like you just cant catch up. Lovely photos. I would consider a walk like that, with my bestest friend in the world, a homerun too!
