I Struggle



I struggle today.


I struggle today because I have no way to recharge.


I struggle today because I have an elderly dog who will undoubtedly cross the rainbow bridge soon.


I struggle today because I feel weak when I have to ask for help with the vent on my grill.


I struggle today because I can't protect my children from their fears about this virus.


I struggle today because I'm fully available to teach my own children and they don't want me to teach them.


I struggle today because my child couldn't share her hiding pet with her class.


I struggle today because I feel like I will never be enough.


I struggle today with my own uncertainty.


I struggle today because I have a hurt knee.


I struggle today because I want to be creative, but I have a creative block.


I struggle today, but I have hope that tomorrow I will find a way


to recharge,


to love my dog another day,


to clean the grill,


to comfort my children,


to teach my children,


to capture a video of the hidden pet,


to KNOW I am enough,


to stretch out my knee, ice it, and go for a walk,


and let my creativity return in whatever form it may.
