Standing in the Rough
Vacation ends tomorrow.
I am pondering this past week and all I have learned. It was a tough week in some ways because I was physically challenged in an area. This was both frustrating and exhausting. I leaned hard on the thought that God is my helper. He provided McKenna for help, too :)
I only lost my cool once. Even then, I learned there are "turtle" times, when it's okay to pull your head in and heal for a bit...and forgive.
This week was rough under my feet at times. I didn't like that I wasn't able to react perfectly. I hate weakness that restricts me. Reminders of past failures crop up with grown children.
I am reminded of something Susannah Conway said in "this I know." I may have mentioned it before.
"This story does not belong to me."
I add, " not anymore."
I will go home, weed out and focus on all of the memorable moments this vacation held for me, good and bad.
I will only hold on to those that belong to me.
