an off day
i am thankful for a windowsill this morning. a ledge upon which to balance my mug. a warm tea i'm beginning to love, with honey to sweeten. a beautiful song on youtube that somehow, in some odd otherworldly way, knows my heart words.
it's a day off work, but not off. of running around planning for a sweet friend's bridal shower this evening. of dragging my still sick self to the shower and letting the hot water pour down the drain. of getting dressed. swiping on lipstick. wearing the little kitten heels.
of moving forward, physically, even when my weary mind is still stuck somewhere between monday night and the early dawn of tuesday, when i had my first cup of coffee in a month.
because we're not machines, us sweet humans. we're soft and squishy and blood beats through us. so we find the little ways to nurture that life. to breathe into it and let it return the favor, one sweet thursday sunrise at a time.
