i need more

i need more of my own resilience more of gut-level determination and spark, to get done with some of the overdue tasks that have been slipping by in the past months and years.
I also need abundant wisdom ( that I truly believe God will give me if I stay open to Him) for daily decisions and small things that if handled now will make for a better tomorrow
it is times like these that make me appreciate my own father, and want to tap into the lessons he taught me.
He has been gone 33 years, and , yes, that leaves me feeling a little cheated.  however in  the 23 years i had him as my earthly father he guided me well.  i will honor him and my heavenly father by making the best of these days and weeks ahead.  i am having a good summer with my own growing family
( two sons plus two daughters-in- law, and my own sweet hannah)  

"Teach me, dear Lord to appreciate each one, as you do, and to love them better than I have in the past"
