shopping, cooking and cleaning.
Now it’s time to slow down, press pause,
give thanks and find meaning.
and I notice their needs are changing.
Our schedules are full….
and we’re constantly rearranging.
and unique levels of energy
Has been an amazing challenge…. requiring much agility.
The reminder of who’s picking up who,
what they need when…and it’s rarely the same!
What time to get up and what time to leave.
all I’ve done is plan and drive
The time together and “ I love you’s” I hear ….
fill our hearts and help us thrive.
gratitude for blessings all around
Despite influences everywhere promoting
newer, better, faster … making desire profound.
and the grounding presence of our mountain’s purples & blues
Forgotten equipment, assignments or lunches …
are simply lessons in planning and “time to slow down” cues.
or moments to pause and breathe…
or listen to books or music….or call friends or family.
We learn from daily disappointments
and things NOT going our way…
Because this forces us to grow, problem solve and discover
….what’s most important today.
noticing the wind rustling through the grass
Feeling the warmth of the sun…seeing cars whizzing past.
I cherish our time together and will have no regrets.
… and what may have changed?
What plans have you let go, what have you re-arranged?
call them changes, phases, chapters or seasons.
They’ll challenge us all, whether or not we’re ready
….or understand the reasons.
And cheers to finding gifts in the challenges ….once again this year!
