In my domestic not-very-skilled expertise, I decided to boil up some potatoes and green beans together, with a little chicken bouillon. Hopefully this will taste okay. I figure everything’s better when you boil up some water for a little bit.
Will proceed to get out the teakettle and boil a little more water, to make some tea. Yes, my life is quite mundane, but that’s just the way I like it. I hope that all of us learn to take pleasure in the simple and ordinary, and to cherish every slow-moving conversation. Thankfully all of this world-wide anxiety is really making me want to sit quietly and read a book.
Let’s all be thankful for our power and electricity, clean water, and domestic bliss. I do recognize that these things are not guaranteed, and I’m so thankful for what I’ve got at this moment. Every little bit of my life with my husband, my dog, and my cat is a blessing from above.
Having suffered depression for twenty-plus years, this moment of clarity is no trivial thing, and I do recognize that I hope for the best for everyone. I will continue to pray as we get through all of this, and will absolutely trust that I’m not the only one doing so. While the whole world is quite big, my little heart beats in steady rhythm that says, “I believe.” I trust that we will get through this, and that we will learn to love appropriately, with clean hands all around, scrubbed with soap for twenty seconds.
