F is for Frustration
For a dog who won’t stay out of my vegetable garden
For a child who wants what he can’t have and wants it now
For a maddening itch that will not relent
For an ever-growing “To Do” List – scratch one item off – add two more
For lack of quiet when I need it most
For missing electronics, keys, chargers, etc.
For an empty laundry basket that only lasts 5 minutes
For an internet connection that will not work!
For weekends that are much too busy to provide refreshment
For a pile of books I want to read, but can’t find the time to
For the check engine light that is on again
O.K. I vented. Anybody with me?
Thank God for…
The sound of running water from my fountain that soothes my frayed nerves
Cold ice water to ease my thirst
Signs and wonders of God’s love
Long walks ALONE on cool autumn nights
The melodic sound of my wind chimes
A refreshing breeze
My dog’s soft fur
The fact that my child is healthy enough to whine
Computer savvy people who can get me back online (Thanks a million!)
