Do you ever have days that you wish you could duplicate day after day after day?
Our lives, as of late, have been beyond busy. We’ve been overwhelmed by birthdays and birthday celebrations (because Dad had school and work on actual birthdays), birthday parties, birthday party preparations, photo sessions, talent show rehearsals, life…in general. All good things but still, I had been going nonstop for way too long and needed a day to be just normal.
I didn’t want easy, per se, just normal.
Yesterday I had one plan. Get in my yoga pants in the morning and stay in them until bedtime. I know. I aim high. The good news? I never had to change clothes or dress up or do anything with my hair.
The better news? After Brian came home from work, I took a 45 minute nap and woke up revitalize and determined to finish my to-do list.
We had dinner together, we had a cleaning party (much to the kids’ chagrin), baths, showers, dancing and work.
I laid down in bed feeling so happy with my day, feeling accomplished because I completed what I had set out to do and feeling complete because in the midst of it all…my family, we were together.
I’m acutely aware that someday, soon, our lives are going to be a million times busier and so yesterday, through the busy, I felt the calm that existed in our home and it was exactly what we all needed.
It’s something that I hope to feel more often. While we still can.
