I see that you showed up today. I am so sorry that I
don't greet you with a happy heart. No, in fact I greet
you from the wrong side of the bed.
Even the sun decided to stay in bed today with the clouds
pulled up to his chin.
I am not happy about your visit. You came and I have
mountains of laundry and a house to get clean and school to teach
and weeds to chop but none of this matters to you. You showed
up just the same.
I am happy to see you most of the time. When you show up I am
sorry to say, uninvited. I am glad to see you. Most of the time.
Today not so much. I will have to work hard at seeing the good
in you today. Seeing that the trees have tiny new leaves, the trees
look like garlands of lace. The pear trees are throwing petals and I stand
beneath them and it looks like snow.
I will have to work hard today being thankful that I have a washing machine
and people to take care of and a house no matter how dirty to clean.
I will be thankful that Monday like you are today doesn't come very often.
So I will put on my working clothes, and my running shoes and I will
keep busy trying to keep up with you today.
Not to mention that tonight when I lay down my head, I will wake up
on the right side of the bed...on Tuesday!
