Sometimes it’s easy to forget the basics.
Air. Just breathe in and out. Babies are screaming. It’s okay. Deep breaths, think it through – what do they need? Oh yeah… Clean diapers make happy babies.
Water. Why do I feel shriveled and exhausted? Oops! Coffee doesn’t cut it. Chug-a-lug.
Sleep. A good sleeping-in should be at the top of every doctor’s medicine list. One morning of sleeping in and I feel like myself again.
(Oy! Look at those frog-belly legs! My retinas! It burns the eyes!)
And then there’s a verse like this one, classic as PB&J, but I forget I forget I forget.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Here’s to remembering and practicing the basics. 🙂
