getting there

i used to have a lot of those days

you know,
the "teeth grinding" kind

my boys would laugh
and say, "she's grittin'"

i'm pleased to say
i've come a ways
in my ability
to change the grit

into a sigh of
soft acceptance

*note: This morning in my quiet reading time. I came across the following quote. I thought it fit well with today's post:

"Honest sighing is faith breathing and whispering in the ear; the life is not out of faith, where there is sighing, looking up with the eyes, and breathing toward God."  ~ Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661)

Hope you have an "accepting" kind of day! :)
