My Soul Has Been Fed

One thing I tend to do when I’m feeling low is isolate myself from friends and family. I don’t want people to see me when I’m down and my eyebrows are bushy and my roots are gray because I haven’t been taking care of myself. It’s really the worst thing I can do when I feel this way. And yet, I do it.
So, last night I made a date with a friend to meet for coffee this morning.
I had a great time catching up with her, just being out of the house. (I wish I could say “not wearing my black sweats” but I was totally wearing my black sweats. Baby steps.)
It was exactly what I needed.
When I got home, I was feeling good, better than I’ve felt in days. My daughter greeted me at the door. “Hi Mommy! There’s a surprise for you on the table.”
I walked over to the kitchen table. There was a plate of fruit with a handwritten note.

Today was a good day.

    You know… I was thinking back to those days when you first discovered you were pregnant. If I remember right, it was a surprise that you didn’t necessarily embrace right away. I was secretly envious of you… we had been trying to have children for eight years with no success. We had both given up. And then a few months after you had your sweet, sweet baby Gabby… we found out our own sweet baby Kekoa would be arriving the following July. And I was sitting here thinking… good thing God sees and plans our future, huh? To think, all along He was planning this breakfast from this little girl for you. It’s on these days, more than any other day, when I see so clearly that God is good.
