Today I Love Finding My Way Home

laundry on the go
The Tuesday orchestra warming up …

Today I love finding my way home on the long, weary, rainy road yesterday and being here this morning to resume the activities of a normal week. I love that the holidays are stil fresh in my mind and heart now that they are over and done with for another year. I love that there are still things to look forward to, my birthday, Chinese new year, Valentine’s day, St. Patrick’s day, Spring’s arrival, the equinox, so many things to love. I love that there might be sushi in my very near future. I love that we were able to make it through the freezing rain yesterday and safely get where we were going and home again. I love that we experienced rain freezing on the windshield but not on the road, and that I was able to figure out how to blast heat on that windshield and vent the car by opening the back windows just a bit so that the rain could be cleaned off the windows by the wipers and we didn’t cook in the car. I love that we found our way home early enough in the day that we were able to unwind and relax a little before the day was finished. I love road trips that work.

Today I love the rumbling of Tuesday laundry. I love that there is a load half done and another one started and there is every indication that they will all manage to pile up against the loads from last week that are always waiting to be folded … I love the gentle look of the world on Tuesdays, like it has something to prove but it has enough time to prove it and that’s exactly what it will do. Good old Tuesday, what a wonderful name for such a stalwart day. I love that there is no way to take the heart out of Tuesday because it just comes roaring back the very next week, as strong and determined to get things looked after as it ever was.

Today I love my big old recliner that holds me gently while I write my way through the trailing end tendrils of this bug that has been haunting my health for over two weeks now. I love when I take a day off from being ill and pretend that I am fine and I especially love when I get away with doing that and it looks like yesterday was one of those days. I love people who are determined to make the world a better place. Go, you people, do your best, I’m cheering for you.

Today I love sipping coffee and letting the laundry machines play familiar songs in my head until they beep at me and remind me that they do not, as yet, have the ability to change their loads themselves.

Today I Love Finding My Way Home

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
