The piles pile up.
The mess gathers round.
I am tired – at the most inconvenient of times.
The pinching nerves in my shoulders keep a steady stream of ache in my arms.
I feel like I have been served more than I can chew some days.

He has allowed these things.
He has blessed me with these things.
I do not mean to complain.
I want to enjoy what I have.

Neither are my victories.
Life has taught me to celebrate the little things;
To see, and to seek, the beauty in each day.
And as I learn to love myself and others where we are at-
To extend grace to each moment.
I am grasping just how
To eat an elephant,
One small bite at a time.
