Life’s Little Challenges By Cookie

Don’t you just love life’s little challenges?

Like trying to stand up when sitting on the couch.

Like trying to turn your head to see if a car is coming.

Like bending down to pick something off the floor.

Like trying to clip your toenails or paint them.

  1. You are so right, somehow you cope with the big picture, but the constant little dig dig digs at your ordinary everyday life is the biggest most likely to break you at the roots. xx
