This weekend was almost magical. The weather was simply gorgeous and although our To Do List is always long…we had no set plans. A miracle in itself!!! It felt as though the days were long & full. I was able to savor the moment, not rush, to relish in each activity. Combined with a thankful heart full of gratitude for what I am so blessed to have, and to do, has left me with a blanket of peace to tuck into after the weekend. The last few weeks I have been so burdened with busyness and sorrowed by situations I find loved ones in, that it has felt like a heavy cloak on my shoulders. For a few short days I was able to lay it aside and truly enjoy each moment.
I took time for kickball with my boys, lunch with a new friend, and nature acitivites. Time at our cabin, lunch out with the family and fishing. Some how the days held time to even get homework done, laundry, grocery shopping & mowing. I found time to make my honey’s favorite dish and even cookies for the boys. I lingered over chores….brushing the goats, petting the cows, fluffing the cats’ bed.
Often times I find myself seeing a friend in a store yet rushing by with a quick wave. This weekend I took the extra 10 minutes to visit and felt so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. For one magical weekend I was given the gift of time. Of realizing what I am so blessed to have. I look forward to having more days like this one. Making each one count.Comments are welcome!
