One day at a time, one foot in front of another. The theme lately and constant reminder to myself to keep moving forward, looking for the little glimpses of beauty in the chaos of everyday.
Today started off so perfectly. Woke up 30 minutes later than my normal 6:15. The boys slept late from an evening with friends yesterday. My morning reading was especially encouraging and my heart feels so full from just finishing one of my favorite books Bringing It to the Table by Wendell Berry. I let the chicks out and made sure everyone was fed and watered still in my house robe and the grass wet from last nights storm. When I came in and sat down with my coffee and reads the thunder and lightening began again. I don’t know a more perfect combination.
The boys are awake now and just finishing up their favorite pancakes and bacon. I made an extra cup of coffee and am looking forward to a day of just being home. Lately my thoughts have been on the idea of home and what it means for me to be a good steward of this place and time. The phrase though misused has been floating in my head “keeper of home”. Thinking through my purpose here and now and staying focused on the seasons of life.
Today I feel content. Full of the blessings (even the boys fighting in the background) and all that has become part of my day to day.
Happy Mothers Day weekend to all who in one way or another share in the joys of motherhood.
