Scattered Spagetti… 

About a week ago I pulled a box of spaghetti noodles out to cook for mom…

If you know me well… Well then you know I had a million things going on around me and in my head…

And so I thought, “I’ll just cook this quickly and move to the next thing”…

Well… Quickly didn’t exactly happen in that moment…

I was moving so fast that I missed the bottom of the box was open…

Meaning I spilt noodles everywhere…

And from there… Well… It was like a game of pick-up sticks…

We all laughed at the mess… I mean what else was I supposed to do?!… Right.??!

But honestly… Honestly I wish life felt that way sometimes…

That I could just laugh at the fact that life seems as though it’s been turned upside down for my family…

I wish I could laugh and pick up the pieces one by one…

I wish I could laugh and see my moms life come together strategically… To see her happy and not depressed… With more life…

But it doesn’t seem like it’s happening that way…

Instead… Sometimes I feel like I just want to lay on the ground and cry because I just split dinner all over the floor and there’s so much to do…

But then that’s when God reminds me that everything will get done in His timing…

And that finding things to love about this reality is as healthy as seeing the things that I hate…

And that, piece by piece, He’ll show us all how to pick up everything that seems so scattered…

And I believe that’s the best attitude I can just live with in this moment…
