I am very thin right now- not physically, but emotionally. Part of it is too many people in the house and too few minutes alone.
But a bigger part of my problem is too many yeses recently: yes to teaching at church, yes to working Friday night at the hospital, yes to a park get-together with friends, yes to playing piano, yes to a video project for a ministry I believe in… On top of school and dinner and Guatemala and laundry and doctoring. All good things, yes. But too many.
Sunday SweetP and I were at the park. This other mom had boundless energy, playing tag and groundies and pushing the kids on swings, while all I could do was sit and soak up sunshine and cough.
I wish I could remember that I am not responsible for all good things. Just because a thing is good does not obligate me to be the one to do it.
