Last week was like a bad game of Hide and Seek.

Except for I didn't know where to start seeking.

Hiding: Our dog.

Hiding (or rather, stolen): Clint's flat bed trailer loaded with livestock panels, bow gates, a butt gate, wire and posts.

Hiding: Answers to a lot of big questions.

I know we have so much - a home, our health, food on the table, family, love, great jobs, and so much more.

More than most.

I know that - but still, still I was bitter. Worried. Frustrated.

And knowing I should be thankful for all of the things we do have instead of being resentful, just made me feel more frustrated.


But looking back on the week, as I compiled my Multitudes post, I realize again that there is much, much, much to be thankful for.

That it's probably ok to be a little frustrated. I guess that's what makes us human.

And that at the end of each day, I need to still be Seeking.
