I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once
It's been a busy week here at my house. When I've been speeding around from place to place, task to task, project to project, I always take some time out to just be present in the moment. I try to set aside any thoughts or concerns about what needs to be done and relax my body and mind and just free myself to enjoy just being.
Whether I enjoy an extended time in the silence or just a few quick moments, I am blessed with some revitalized. The benefits from my time of rest encourages me to take time every day to just be. Be quiet. Be still. Be at peace. Those precious moments can super charge my day.
This Saturday is like most of my days lately. Much to do and since I am so much slower at doing things, It will take me most of the day to get it done too. I need those moments of doing nothing just to make it through these busy days.
After a few weeks of lots of work here at my house I have finally managed to change what used to be a very unorganized craft room into a spare bedroom. I had some help with the really tough stuff as DS#5 came to spend one day with me. I just don't have the muscle power to move heavy furniture or tear out old carpet anymore. He was a life saver for me for sure.
Now I've the big task of bringing things out of the basement and attic storage to take to my camper. Hopefully very soon I'll get there to open it up for the season. Mean while there is a lot that needs to be loaded into the car, making for many trips up and down stairs and then outside to the car. It can't be done in one trip either, as my car isn't that big, but it is exciting for me to be going to my little place in the woods for another season of camping.
I'll have plenty of precious moments of quiet there once the huge job is done... So much has been happening here at home with family celebrations and with the expectation of a new grandbabe coming that my normal camping season is starting a little later than usual. I may not get there as often as I have in the past, but I will be enjoying each moment to fullest, here or there, I've so much to be thankful for.
Taking the moments as the come and always setting aside a few moments for quiet and peace makes for a very happy life indeed.
I hope your Saturday is a SUPER one!
