Ugh. It's another Eeyore day. Actually, it's gloomier than that. I hate feeling this way. The corners of my mouth sag. My eyes are dull. I don't want to do anything. And when I do something anyway, I am only half-focused and completely apathetic. I can't concentrate, I can't remember, I can't enjoy the things I know are good, such as this morning's sunrise, Grandpa, or having enough food and shelter.
I pray. I take medicine and hope it works. I wait for the black cloud to lift. I wait.
If you got out of bed today, give thanks.
If you took a shower without a second thought, give thanks.
If you can write a sentence in under 20 minutes, give thanks.
If you have a desire for anything, give thanks.
And if you don't...give thanks. Often. If you're having an Eeyore day too, let's ride this out together. Even though we don't feel hope, let's not give up on it. We are still blessed.
