Changes

The weather has changed here, hopefully the intense heat has gone. this is however south Georgia, and anything is possible here. The change in temperature and the relief is welcome! This always reminds me that it is time to decorate for fall, I will do my best to get it done, and choose not to worry about what does not get done.
There are not enough hours in the day it seems, or maybe my plate is so full right now that I will never get it all done. The unwanted changes in my life are difficult at best to handle most days. Watching Daddy go through this horrific disease, and watching Mama adapt and cope with his deterioration, is taking its toll on all of us. We are each struggling in our own way.
My youngest brother has a gift, and makes us laugh when we least feel like it, he even makes Daddy laugh! He has taught me that sometimes you just have to say "Boogers". At a time, when there is nothing to laugh about, and you think that you can't laugh about anything, there are still boogers.
This morning when I thought about all of the things that lay ahead for me to do today, I was reminded of that word. I spoke the word Boogers, and couldn't help it, I smiled. Maybe I didn't laugh, but I smiled. Boogers! It will not change reality, but it will give me a moment to breathe and smile.
