This last week was a marathon for our family. Every single day we had a million obligations along with the normal flow of life. Most nights I found myself falling into bed with so little energy that a sigh was taxing.
But last week is done. This week there is little on my calendar and I couldn't be more thrilled. Tomorrow you will find me weeding the garden, sewing a blanket for a humanitarian aid project, finalizing our school schedule, and washing blankets. That may sound like work but most of that are things that I find deep satisfaction doing. Small things like sewing a baby blanket make me feel like I have done something with my time. After last week that left me frazzled and exhausted, the simple daily tasks of caring for a family are something to rejoice in.
And if I get lucky, you might find me sitting on the front porch, taking a few deep breaths and watching the sun set, my favorite soul settling moment that I look forward to every single day.
