low expectations=magic

Here's my goal: finish this post.
Fold laundry, exercise, toss junk mail.
Eat a dark chocolate square, slowly.
Finish unpacking one (just one!) box.
Listen to my daughter's fairy tale,
starring Princess Frosting (a mean princess)/
"Stinky Dragon with a Stinky Attitude".
Pray. Read one psalm. Breathe in.
Breathe out, and repeat that again.
Taste the salt in the air.
Be present reading stories to Lucy,
then patient waiting in the dark,
listening to my daughter fall asleep.

These six-word lines brought to you courtesy of six-word fridays, over at making things up. Come on! Be brief with us!
