Things that get you through:
An unexpected piece of cheesecake from a neighbor.
A bright red marigold blooming on the back porch.
The three-year-old singing, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" fifty-two times while twirling.
The three-year-old and three-week-old napping at the same time for two hours.
The indwelling of the Holy Trinity--no matter how much your body aches.
