Well, I find myself fighting with these 10 pounds, it goes up then down up then down and well I want to punch it in the face. I have started running a little trying to get my foot back in working order again. The lilacs on my tree outside have bloomed and the smell always reminds me of Omaha. My five year old is in my room watching cartoons and I am afraid I let him do that to much at times. I have had my coffee this morning, a ham sandwich and my prayer time. Me and my little guy are headed to a park to play for a bit and then I have a massage at 2:30 and a chiropractic appointment.
I am watching the trash guy go around to each house and it just dawned on me that I am not sure if we stuck ours out. Just checked it, all I have to say is Jon is a good man.; ) Its Monday and I find myself slow and thoughtful today with not much agitating me at the moment. Jon is out golfing, I have never seen a man get blessed with so much free golf. God definitely knows his love language but I am happy for him. As I look around the house I see lots of little things that need to be taken care of. The front windows have little sticky hand prints all over them from the kids taking the “Dukes of Hazard” way into the house. The sink is full of dishes from the huge batch of brownies my oldest made for her class auction today. I have tried to get brownies to come out that thick and moist for 13 yrs and she seemed to have mastered it in one try. That child is amazing.
I have few plans for the day and I like that. I have yet to get dressed or brush my teeth and I find myself lost in this comfy lime green chair. My goal today is to make my little one laugh and see the adventure all around him. To capture the sweet smell of lilacs blooming in my backyard and bring them to my dining room table. My goal is to clean up some of the little details that keep this place running smoothly and to purposefully leave some messes untouched. So this is what a sabbath feels like?
Tomorrow is a busy day, but today is soft, sweet, quiet and cozy. Just a day to look around at small things, a day to rest my mind and rejuvenate, a day to walk and not run. A day to breathe in… Today!
Yesterday is History
Tomorrow is a mystery…
today is a gift! -Eleanor Roosevelt
