New Appreciation

Muscle aches.


My sinuses.

My head.

Zero motivation.


That was my weekend.

What did I learn?


The To Do list

Gets set aside.

I’m thankful for

A family who can

Take care of themselves.


More than that,

I learned

A new appreciation

For those who deal

With chronic

Illness and pain.

Though they may not

Feel as if

They’re flying,

They go from

One responsibility

To the next.

Hats off to them,

To all who fly

When it would be

So much easier

To curl up

And stay grounded.

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1, NIV).
