This Too...

It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations.  
They presented him with the words, "And this too, shall pass away."  
How much it expresses!  
How chastening in the hour of pride!  
How consoling in the depths of affliction!  
~ Abraham Lincoln

The problem with quotes on the internet is that 
you can't always depend on their accuracy.  
~ Abraham Lincoln

So, as days creep by and I am here alone in the house - the sewing machine quiet and the loom still - falling further and further behind at work - I have to keep reminding myself forcibly how relatively minor this is and how relatively quickly it shall pass...  

And the logical part of me knows that it IS relatively minor and WILL be over soon.  But it's still no fun - and it continues to surprise me how much my spirits can be dragged down by even a little bit of pain, after it's been hanging around for a while.  

And I can't wait until everything is back to normal.
