In the middle of the journey of our life
I found myself in a dark wood,
For I had lost the right path.
~Dante, Il Inferno
Perhaps one of the most frustrating things about going through a tough time is that you can have a terrific day and not feel any better. You can have a lot of “fun” and still feel lost in “a dark wood”.
Today was a good day. It was a really good day. But I still felt pretty rotten through it all.
Grace came in:
-early breakfast with my sister
-dark coffee at Roast n Toast
-applefest with my dear friend Laura
-whitefish and rice with the whole family, including my grandpa who I picked up from his nursing home
-celebrating my little brother’s 23rd birthday
-enjoying my mom’s amazing apple crisp with ice cream
