I was all prepared, hopeful actually, to have a five minute word prompt that I could use to do one of the acronym poems. I had all sorts of thoughts running through my head even though I didn’t have a word.
And when the word Relief finally presented itself, courtesy of Miss Kate, I drew a blank. What in the world could I do with the word relief?
My thoughts slowly flew over my day, a day where much relief was felt. Let me recount it for you if I may.
First we had women’s bible study this morning. It meant some rushing around since early mornings can be difficult. But I went. I heard women laugh, honestly enjoying a moment together. Not at anyone’s expense, just the enjoyment of spending time with each other. My heart relaxed, a quick relief in the moment. Crowds can be hard, but this crowd good. Then conversation ensured, a lady I don’t know making me feel at home. We’ll be studying the life of Gideon.
Before heading home I contacted hubster asking if he was going to the community meal. Beef stew was on the menu, was he interested? We agreed to meet there so I wouldn’t have to go home first. We arrived simultaneously, the joy there is in that! No waiting around.
A warm greeting, hubby would eat the broccoli salad I couldn’t have and… the stew was good, warm in the belly. Relief felt at being well fed, and the lad was happy too.
This third relief is not mine, though I did play a part. A phone call “Annette, I have a job for you, it needs to be done today. Can you do it?” I said yes. Relief flooded the voice over the line. My day got busier than I planned and I had to let a couple of things slide, but the relief in that voice… WORTH IT!
And looky there! I even managed a small poem too! 🙂
