Unexpected slow downs

Sometimes life doesn’t whisper a slow down it sneezes our activities to a halt. This is true whether that sneeze comes from ourselves or our family members. However it is especially true if you are a caregiver of an ill family member.

On this hump day, illness chose to visit my spouse. Normally this would not be a life halting experience, but when that spouse is expected at a meeting the next day those icks become a game changer. This is especially true when one half of the marriage is a stay at home parent. Then both halves need to work equally hard to ensure that the only working half is able to perform.

So on this day my primary goals shifted, and that’s okay. We all need a slow down day. Even if it’s to help someone else get better.

Stay well!
