I don’t know if there is such a thing as happy tired. But right now I’m happy, and I’m tired.
I’m on a flight home right now. I land at 12:03 a.m. tomorrow, and I started at 2 something this afternoon. (There’s a time change in those numbers, but I’m too tired to do the math!)
I’ve been blessed with a two week visit at my daughter, son-in-law and grand-kids home. On the other side of the country.
I just scrolled through the pictures on my phone and no wonder I’m tired, but that’s what we do when we travel across the country to visit family. We do lots of things to squeeze a whole bunch of missed time into a few days!
I’m grateful for the time and ability to go and spend time (thank you to my hubby for holding down the fort and feeding the cat while I was away).
And even though my tired is one part travel induced, and one part grand children overdose, a portion of is also stress induced.
Because stress is one of those things I do.
I find it hard to be 100% where I am.
I worry about things at home when I’m away. And when I get home, I worry about about my family on the other coast.
I know it’s wrong, and trust me when I say I’m much better at controlling my stress than I used to be, but I’m not there yet.
So I’m Weary by Wednesday this week, but I’ll recoup. I’ll get back to my homebody routine. Shed a few more tears when little feet and giggles don’t wake me up tomorrow.
I’ll have to Face-Time instead.
And I’ll spend some time reading my favorite anti-stress verses…hopefully getting rid of the tired part of happy tired.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:33-34)
What’s your favorite anti-stress verse? I can always use some more!
I sure hope you have a wonderful week, thanks for sharing your Wednesday with me.
