Joy, week 16
I had a quiet pause in the car on Friday afternoon while I waited for my children to exit their school. I thumbed through my 2012 notebook to review my goals for the year and see where I really stand. It was revealing.
I’ve accomplished some specific things that I set out to do, such as an overnight trip to do some sewing with my sister. There are a great many specific things I haven’t touched yet. The goals for implementing certain changes or habits in my life/home are more humbling because it’s difficult to change. I would like to regroup a little, get back on track. All I need to do that is some quiet time. Anybody have some quiet time for sale?
Seriously, I do feel like I need to refocus, but I’m in the sprinting stage. Life from here to summer will be a blur and I want to do a good job. I’m going to do my very best and remember that in a few weeks we’ll have a major shift in schedule and I can start over in those areas that are lacking.
The week was a good one. I’d sum it up in two words: doctor, soccer. Tonight we had a little birthday party for a friend of mine and the children enjoyed themselves immensely. We laughed and shared stories and enjoyed the utterly perfect weather. A wonderful evening, making me sigh with gratitude for the gift of friendship. Last night we spent an equally enjoyable evening with some old friends. I feel so blessed to know these remarkable people.
I have so much more to say, things that have been floating around in my head all day, but I just dozed off for the 3rd time. We have to get our son to the hospital super early in the morning for his ankle surgery so I think I’d better call it a night.
Have a great week!
