Slow times make me think that they'll always beslow. Busy time make me think I'll never get a break. This is where my balance mantra must kick in. There seems to be a break in activity and I've been going at such full speed, it's hard to slow down. But this is just how it works.
C is a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes. This morning he was telling me about one particular cartoon. Calvin was in the bathtub and yelled to his mom that it was too hot. So she came in a turned on the cold water. Then he yelled that he was too cold. So she came in and added more hot water. Then Calvin yelled that it was too deep.
I don't think C knew that what he was saying was exactly what I needed to hear. But it was. That it will always be too "something". And, really, there's no sense in griping about it because it will never be perfect. So just enjoy what you have when you have it. Maybe the imperfections are what make it perfect.
