The thought of being “all tangled up” in something is an awfully appealing and comforting one to me. “Tangled up” in my husbands love, experiencing his hugs and his kisses, is a joy; “tangled up” in a warm, soft, fleecy blanket after it's just been freshly pulled out of a hot dryer, is sheer coziness; “tangled up” in a meaningful hug with my son just because we both love each other, is a blessing; and “tangled up” in all the big questions of life such as ... {more please!}

Please forgive me for whining just a little, but this particular week seems to quickly be turning into one of “those” weeks when not only multiple things are vying for my attention, but I'm coming down with my now-annual and oh-so-annoying head cold to boot. And you know something? I'm beginning to feel the stress creep in like an arthritic shoulder senses the rain when it's on its way.
