I was getting ready to post this photo last night when Augusta woke up. I went upstairs to nurse her back to sleep. I imagined coming back downstairs to my computer to finish posting the photo before I fell asleep. Then I was asleep. So there was no photo posted yesterday for my Pogo Project but I have decided not to start back at one.
I’ve been thinking about encouragement. I look at this blog regularly and she ends many of her posts, “Encourage one another.” Lately I have noticed how quickly I become discouraged. Here’s a recent example. I noticed how dirty the wall beside our stairs was and went out to get some Magic Erasers. I had never used them before but had heard that they were magic. They are. In no time, the wall beside the stairs was looking much better. Then I noticed other walls that were dirty and trim that needed to be repainted. I didn’t feel better off than when I started. But I was.
I sometimes blame other people or events for discouraging me. But I know I have a say. That is why I’m not starting back at one. I’m thinking of missing a photo yesterday as a wobble and this is me regaining my balance.
