i woke this morning and remembered i have a lot to do before the end of the week.  i walk through the
house and it's chilly this morning.  just a short time ago a warm breeze was blowing through the open
windows. i worry about my to do list and whether it will all get done.
i stop in the kitchen and look over at some dishes in the sink,  then i walk upstairs and look at the messy bed.   i remind myself - those dishes?  they are evidence of a long savored monday night family dinnner.  and that messy bed ? a reminder that i didn't have to rush today. that i got to savour that extra cup of coffee. it will all get done - eventually.
this house?  people live here.  people who laugh, people who makes messes, people who leave their clothes around. people who are imperfect.   it might be an upside down day but those are good too.

as i look to the immediate future, i remind myself i have a date with a plane in a few short days. a short trip to the sunshine state to hug mom and remind her how amazing and brave she has been this past year. thats where i will focus my energy.   i checked the forecast and it reads sunny and 75 -  i'll take it.

love sent, xo
