This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Many have called me wise. Yes. I am wise. I am wise enough to know that I am wise.
However, so many terrible things are happening in the world. Terrible things in many different places. I hear what the persons talk about. And I don’t have any advice. I don’t have any words. But I do have perspective.
Yesterday, we got reports of more severe and bad weather coming our way. We were supposed to move camps on Thursday. But we would have had to risk heavy rain and thunderstorms. And when you are trying to move your whole house it’s not an easy task.
Girl Person was feeling sick. And the thought of having to change plans at the last minute made her cry. I had no words. I have no words for many things. But I do have perspective.
Because we were fortunate enough to have a house to move and fortunate enough to have food for the day and fortunate enough to be alive was enough.
There were no words to take away the bad happening in the world.
But realizing our problems were small gave me more energy to get done what we needed to.
To complain would have taken more energy. More sadness out into the world.
I don’t have words to say right now. Everything going on hurts. But try to find perspective. If you cannot find the words, listen.
