We take a step
Just one step
We’ve climbed a mountain.
Feeling that good? Or that bad?
Oh, well, I had not considered it could be taken both ways! Well done. But to answer your question….it was more of a reflection that some days we can only take one step. And on some of those days, we realize with that final, or first, step, we have climbed a mountain. And the realization is empowering.
Some days, one step is all we can handle.
That is the truth. And that one step can be mountain, though we may not know it until much later. Here’s to our single step days Carolin.

This is so true!
That’s a great step. Reminds me of the moon landing, one small step for mankind… 🙂
I’m sure I misquoted that.
Yup, I had to go and look it up: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” 🙂
And small trivia fact….during the transmission of that statement from the moon there was an “a” in the sentence. Do you know where it was ? (The static eradicated it from earth being able to hear it).
and sometimes that is all we can do and that is enough.
The journey doesn’t big until the first step is taken. Thank you for the reminder, Colleen.
Exactly Russ, nor does it end until you take that last one. 🙂
Absolutely true! Yes!
It’s quite the realization isn’t it? 🙂
That’s how I feel when I’ve scrubbed a toilet.
Well, that’s not a scenario I envisioned. However, I can totally relate to it.
These days, when I can accomplish even the smallest of cleaning tasks, I’m immensely proud of myself.
I remember that….. 😉
Not too much longer I’m sure……you got this.
It’s not so much the pregnancy I’m worried about. It’s what comes after. My youngest is seven, but I still remember how difficult a newborn is… and a toddler… and potty training. Just nervous is all. Our lives here will be vastly different. I’ve gotten so lazy!
You will have a baby, you will come home, you will be in love. The work will be no problem. 😉
Not sure why I find myself whining and complaining to you so often lately! Maybe because you’re a good cheerer-upper. But gosh, I love my sleep. I’ve had it so good these past few years, but no more. So be it.
Whining ? Complaining ? Oh PIF, you are doing neither. You are sharing. And I’m grateful you are. And about sleep, here is what I wish for you….. my first child slept through the night from the day we brought her home, my second child within the week of bringing her home. I wish this for you. And, I wish for you the energy that wakes you in the middle of the night to go stare at your child. And when you wake in the morning…..tiredness be damned……you had to stare at your love. 😉
Wow! I didn’t know it was possible for babies to do that! That’s the stuff of legend! Could I be so lucky?
Yes. Yes you can PIF. You MUST believe in it!!!!
Like Tinkerbell? 😉
Sure!!!!! I mean, I didn’t know it DIDN’T happen with my first it was SO easy. The first week of my second child, I thought, ‘this is odd’. But she soon followed suit. I was TRULY lucky.
Indeed! Whatever happens, I know I’ll survive it. My last kid was ROUGH! So it’s gotta be better than that. Oh, dear Lord, I hope! He’s good to me, though. If I remind Him what a wuss I am, He generally cuts me some slack. 🙂
Well he’s a good one ! But yeah….you got this. And I’m very excited for you. 🙂
Sheepish thanks. 😕
