When life changes so much, I seek out comfort in what has stayed the same.We all know how much I like my routine. There is definitely comfort in that. There is simplicity in those day to day tasks that we need to do to keep moving. There have been a couple of nights when I found myself at the sink doing dishes, content to be part of the routine.
A couple days ago, I wrote about remembering things about myself. Remembering those things, doing those things, being that person that I want to be again brings me comfort. It reminds me that I am capable of being more than messy.Seeing the people around me unchanged, quietly engaged in their activities, encourages me to move forward.
I feel pretty exhausted for a Sunday night. We were all headed back home, and I heard a sound from the backseat. A clicking. I saw this little lady pictured above. She has been teaching herself to knit. I loved hearing that sound.This reminder that something was still the same after life has been turned upside down brought peace to my heart. I was struck by the joy on her face and the soothing sound of those whisper-like clicks.
And while I may feel a little weary headed into this week, I can take that bit of peace with me.
