It feels like it's been a stretch
of vexing little set-backs and disappointments;
(just life-headaches, but...)
I opened a pack of pre-ordered printed Christmas photos and the first thing I see is this...
and didn't notice the date had reverted back to the template setting??😐
That's all I can figure out though I thought I checked everything thrice!!
...so nothing to do but fix it; At least it's not a wedding invitation or something like that!
Earlier this month a bright spot was delivered in form of apple pie
courtesy of many volunteers from our church
assembling them for our young families
as an encouragement during these trying Covid-times.
(No! We are not considered 'younger family'😊)
but I had the honour of writing a poem for
the lids of the pie-boxes and received a pie as a thank-you!
Because someone had framed the poem
in lovely autumn- artwork I hung it on the fridge.
Tonight I reread it and decided this coming weekend
we are baking the pie to enjoy,
and forget disappointments for a bit!
Victoria comforted me with these words
'Sure, in the big picture these are little things
but in the moment they still hurt💛
She makes me want to count my blessings,
not my disappointments!
And she is one of our best!
