As I surfed the net for a quote for today's blog I found this one and then smiled, it was written by me. Kind of funny, at least to me. I wasn't going to share it but decided it delivers the message I was looking for.
What are some of your favorite things to do? What do you need to do them? Is it something you do independently or are there others with you? When you are in a lull of life, what motivates and inspires you to keep moving forward and enjoying the little things in life?
A few thoughts to ponder today...although the deck is under a few feet of snow and there isn't any signs of spring in the near future, I am encouraged when I reread the above statement because warmer, sunnier, and brighter days are yet to come. Are you ready?
What are some of your favorite things to do?
We had a wonderful weekend for a few reasons. A surprise visit from our daughter started Friday off on a VERY good note and then the bad weather yesterday keeping her home an extra day, better yet. Thanks to the snow day called by our district superintendent, I was able to take Mary back to college myself and enjoy a few moments of mother-daughter time with her. God was nice enough to clear up the weather for our travels and as I type this blog, the snow and stormy weather returns.
Instead of rolling back over and sleeping in I got up with the alarm and got busy. The day started with a two-hour delay and my goal was to get ahead of the game before going to work. Three loads of laundry washed and dried and the dishes were done before the call came announcing the snow day. With this gift of time I smiled and went to my sewing room and started to enjoy some time puttering on my next project.
It is common to hear people say "I don't have enough time." and I'm guilty of this at times too so on a Snow-Day, I take advantage of this gift of time to catch up on things that keep getting moved onto the next list, or baking, or sewing, and sometimes (not often) I just vegitate and read a good book or watch Hallmark.
If you are gifted a day of time,
Why do I write?
Writing to glorify God and help others! "Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders." Psalm 119:27 (NIV)
