yesterday was a day.
started off bleak and I was flattened. face down with despair. tired. overcome. I made it to matins and sat at the side of the sanctuary. out of the way. I love matins. I should go more often. It is quiet and meditative. It is good for me.
I saw my friends. And even though I could not pray - they could pray for me. And by the end of liturgy I had the energy to pick myself up and start again. And so it goes.
It is Lent after all. We are in the last week. We are heading into Lazarus Saturday/ Palm Sunday and Holy Week. My mind starts to shift to preparations for Pascha.
