There is no denying that life hands
us a lot of these...
flat tires (my car last week), illnesses, financial troubles
death and loss,
broken AC (our AC two weeks ago), broken dryers (yup)
bills that stack higher than the empire state building
endless messes to clean up
dying laptops (I know right!)
ridiculous allergy trouble
and....blah blah blah
well, I think you get the idea right.
I'm sure each of you has a list of your own!
But it is important to remember
that in the overall scheme of things
There is still so much to partake of!
So much joy to be found
in the little
Laughter, hugs and kisses
to be shared.
Adventures to be taken
Songs to be sung.
Dances to be danced
Love to be received
and Love to be given
Creativity to be explored
Rainbows and stars to gaze at
Air to breath in and
passion to breath out
Nature to captivate our souls
And a God to stand in awe of.
(Surprisingly, this graffiti gave both me and my husband a chuckle on our walk!)
I may not look happy but, I promise I am!
This is what I LOVE to do
after Daisy goes to sleep.
I sit outside on our patio (not usually at her picnic table...this was for humor)
bring a good book out to read,
my laptop to blog hop or facebook
and listen to the sounds of my baby's
music on the monitor next to me.
This is how I recharge.
I thrive in this quiet time of creativity and connection.
Where do you recharge?
Do you make sure to find the time to do so?
Something about becoming a mother
Something about caring so fully for another
Has shown me the importance
of living my life more abundantly.
I don't want to waste time on selfish things
I don't want to waste time on worry
or silly household messes
I don't want to stress over things
that will ultimately pass in time
I want to be here
And trust in the Lord to do
all the worrying and sorting out for me!
