Yup, this is me…just in from an early morning walk and smirking as usual.
As you may know, I have decided to spend more time doing the normal things, but being more “aware” of the beauty in them. I find it funny how life sometimes throws one things with “double meanings.” Let me explain. I don’t really spend my weekends climbing mighty snow-capped mountains…but my life with my children is a snow covered, slippery slope most of the time. (And the view is just as breathtaking.) I don’t often get to enjoy beautiful views from a lovely “viewpoint” on the edge of a ridge…but I believe the viewpoint of the life I am living right now is equally as beautiful and just as challenging. The view of watching my children daily, grow into young adults ,fascinates me (more than I can describe.) I don’t get to see the freshly fallen snow because I live in a rainy zone…but I don’t think there is anything as beautiful as my little Maxie’s smile as he runs through the rain.
Although I will be spending time taking even more adventures than I did last year( with and without my kids)…I will be watching, and appreciating the adventure that is… in the “every day.”
I am left to wonder…what mighty adventure will I encounter today?
Some time after Christmas I realize… everything has s-l-o-w-e-d down. The mad-dash to get and wrap gifts, as well as nursing sore fingers from crafting like a mad woman, has now been completed. The concerts and specials, practiced for (and attended) are now stalled. I try my hardest, during this time, to begin a new project when a new year has begun…and this one is no different. I am busy at work with new crafty ideas that will fill up my spare time and bring smiles to the faces of friends and family well after the holidays are over.
May you be keeping yourselves busy with lovely things.
Hello friends. This new year has started off with a mighty thunder clap and an impressive rainstorm. (It’s a good thing I love those :O) I have been laying low the last couple of weeks. In a couple of months I will be making some major changes. Not sure what that will look like just yet, so I will need to keep you posted.
I hope your new year finds you well. Most of all, I wish you many blessings on all your new year’s resolutions.
You can do anything you put your mind to. So keep your mind focused on good things. I believe you can accomplish them.
Enjoy your day friends. You won’t get this one back.
