It’s Five Minute Friday time again! The word for this week is: FIND

Do you ever have one of those days, or even weeks, where nothing seems to go right…you are busier than normal, you get sick, things just end up a little crazy? I would imagine we all do.

That was my week this week. My throat is on fire and that seems to double the feeling of everything else. AND…I was reading this book all month that was just reallllly hard to get through. I wasn’t going to give up on it, but…oh my word…

I was totally ready for the weekend. A day to get caught up, to not have to wake the kids up early for school (really, 8:30 isn’t all that early, but whatever) and to just veg if I want to. I like when Jeffy comes home on Fridays. We usually have a little somethin’ and just chat or do whatever, all calm like.

With my whole week being so messed up I just gave up on the weekend…I got a bad attitude and that is just not like me at all!!

This evening while doing the bird chores (because the birds don’t care if your throat hurts) I was scuffling about and saw something colorful in the dirt. It was a feather. From one of our peafowl.

I only had my phone on my so I snapped a quick pic. But it was just nice, finding something like this in the middle of the dirt. My attitude changed, a smile came to my face and I was able to enjoy the rest of my evening. My throat still hurts, but you know what, that’s ok, I know it will get better soon enough. 🙂

    It’s interesting how one small, but beautiful thing, can help us change how we feel. I hope your throat feels better soon.
