Again can be such a frustrating word at times. As I write, bubbly dishwater is waiting for me to dip my hands in it. . . again.
It is time to exercise. . .again.
It is time to record what I ate this morning. . .again.
The laundry room is in full swing. . . again.
Beds got made this morning. . .again.
The never-ending cycle of the work day waits. . .again.
It is time to lose those few pounds(more than a few sometimes). . .again.
It is that time of the month. . .again. (TMI, I'm famous for it.)
I had to ask forgiveness for the same darn thing. . .again.
Insert audible, I'm over it, over myself, frustrating sigh. . .again.
However, AGAIN has a flip side that I MUST remind myself of. . .again.
I have food to eat and dishes to eat off of. . .again.
I have clothes to wear. . .again.
I have a bed to sleep in (wherein I slept next to my healthy spouse and tucked my healthy children in.) . . .again.
My husband is a hard worker and is has a desire to provide for his family. . .again.
I am a 41-year-old woman with no known health problems who has the ability to move my body. . .again.
I serve the Creator of the Universe who sacrificed His Son so I can ask forgiveness. . .again.
The power of the word AGAIN.
The more I look at it, the more i write it, the letters appear to separate and instead of again I see A GAIN. . .as in a step in the right direction.
