A splitting sinus headache kept me home from work today. When medicine made it almost tolerable,
I made soup.
I made chili.
I organized the fridge.
I thought about the blessing of being home and doing what I used to do when I was a stay-at-home mom. It was restoring to me. Or should I say, a restoring of me? To take a break from work and cook to nourish my family was a deep, core experience for me today.
And, I saw a red-headed woodpecker on my tired, old maple tree!
