Sometimes Life Happens

28 Apr

Sometimes life happens…

Where, oh where, has the day gone?  I’ll be honest with you… I feel like I have been wading through some thick waters the last week.  Not even the waters of my own life situation, but when we are in the Body of Christ, we bear each others burdens.  Sometimes people in our lives need someone to walk beside them through a situation and trust the Lord with them.

Sometimes the lighting outside is poor, even at 8:00, so your toast with pb and banana look like they are trapped in an aquarium.

Sometimes you use the last piece of bread and end piece, the last banana, and the final T of peanut butter left in the house all in the same meal.

Sometimes there is something baking in the oven before you’ve even taken a bite of breakfast.

Sometimes you have a mid-morning snack because you are hungry/eager to taste the nutty, seedy. fruity, oaty result of your early morning labor.

Sometimes you excitedly share your new found recipe with the whole world and one of your friends tells you that it looks like “doo doo”.  Her words, not mine.

Sometimes a big bowl of roasted veggies is what is called the perfect lunch. Roasted brussel sprouts… sweet potato… and some garbanzo beens…

Sometimes you put a dollup of Averie’s Peanut Sauce right one top.

Sometimes you take the day off from the gym and you watch Dear John on TV instead.
Sometimes you stay on the couch watching the movie so long that you are super rushed and only manage some granola, grape, and grape tomatoes for dinner… and don’t even have time to take a picture.
Sometimes you need a cup of coffee and a large glass of water before sitting still in class at church for an hour.
Sometimes you plan to go to Body Pump in the morning and it does not work out the way you wanted, so you get all crunk.
Sometimes you miss watching the beauty of a sunrise, on the way home from the gym, at 6 am because you are so caught up in your own bad mood, so you get back in bed.
Sometimes that means that you don’t end up blogging until after lunch…
Life happens… sometimes.

      I do love roasted chickpeas! Dear John is sad, but that is what I was kind of in the mood for. The book is different, and I kind of wish I had my copy back. I left it on a train in Europe…
