Through a glass half-full

Dammit. There’s mud on the floor:

(But that means the rains came, finally.)

Ugh, there are too many dishes in the sink.

(But that means we ate dinner.)

WTF, I stepped on a Lego, and tripped over Ariel the Little Mermaid, and stubbed my toe on a tambourine.

(But that means the kids have enough toys.)

Ooof the laundry pile never disappears.

(But that means we have enough clothes)

I stay up waaaaaayyyyy too late.

(But that means I have someone to talk with late into the night.)

*YAWN* I wake up waayyyyy too early.

(that means I have a job 🙂 )

Oh GAWD, my bag is so heavy

(BUT means I have the kind of job that lets me work from a rooftop in Jerusalem, or by the lip of the sea near Tel Aviv.)

My kids are dragging their feet down the muddy dirt road.

(But that means we notice the wildflowers that grew over night. )
