The sun broke through and the fog lifted yesterday morning as I drove down the hill to my place of employment.  I had this realization that some of the stresses I had been carrying in my heart had been lifted.  I am of the belief that we are only given as much as we can handle - generally we can handle more than we think we can and so we stretch and grow and suffer gently as we are molded into our best selves - but I had really reached a point that I had reached my maximum.  I truly felt that I could not handle any more misadventures/ broken appliances/ obstinate youth/ surprise bills/ work drama.  The weekend brought more - and then without any participation my part - the final straw was resolved.  Made better.  It was not a perfect solution but it was one I could cope with.  There was this real sense that I was in a relationship with the universe and it was a two way street.  There was a point where I could say it is enough and God saw it was so and relented.  Does that make sense?  It truly was enough - and there was a recognition that I needed a break and I got it and I was EXTREMELY thankful.   And rejuvenated and energized - I can pick myself up, dust myself off and rally on.

Forward my friends.

that's so true. just when the pendulum swings too far one way, it begins to return to the center again.
