Stuck Between

When March doesn't look the way I've envisioned, it's tempting to sigh and fret a little. When sibling spats and teenage sarcasm bring me close to a middle age meltdown...

When snow keeps piling up and it's almost the first day of spring, and the van is stuck in a snow drift in a lane way up the road...and instead of trying to push it out I walk home,lugging my bag of groceries and wonder why I wouldn't wear the mittens I keep in my van  for times such as these...

This does not look like enough snow to be stuck...but I really was...strange isn't it?
  Even the best laid plans can  go awry. 
Who am I to think I can orchestrate my day?
 Sure I make plans, and I aspire to do good each day but on my own it falls flat pretty fast.
Supper isn't started when it should be and as I'm slicing the ham to fry up with some eggs and daughter helps by setting the table and makes toast and we work in amicable silence.
The truth is sometimes I feel stuck too. stuck between seasons and stuck between gratitude and grumbling, but I know the truth; there is no in between, either I am thankful or I am not. There is no middle road to this journey, and as I mull over my day, I find the good in the gritty and the marvelous in the mundane, and I say thank-you not only for fair weather times but for times when I'm stuck and need a push in the direction of gratitude.
