Feelin’ Good

11-6-10     9pm

Ugh. Long day. I wanted to feed the ducks but we didn’t get to that. An hour plus at a Super Walmart is more than I can comfortably handle. I can’t screen out excess stimuli and it’s just too much.

That said, I feel pretty good right now. I’m stuffed. We went to Janet’s Cafe for dinner and I had the best banana cream pie I’ve ever eaten.

Observe & Describe:

I feel warm, calm.
I see Zoe playing.
I hear Mom rustling plastic in the kitchen.
I feel my hair on my face.
I hear the cars outside.
I feel the air in my nose as I breathe.
I feel the texture of my bottom teeth with my tongue.
I see the colors of my pjs.
I notice the curve of my nails.
Feel the grip of the pen.
I feel tired, and content.
I feel all the places my body connects with the couch. I’m grateful it holds me up.
I hear an airplane.
I recognize I am breathing.

I am so grateful to be alive. God is good. :)
