Have you ever had a week where things just kept piling up?
You just get started on one thing – when something else hits you. Boom.
Some of the things were wonderful – like Matt coming home!
And a brother/sisters coffee date.
And a brother road trip to see Iron Man 3 in 3 D.
And my niece’s beautiful wedding. (I cried!)
And seeing family again.
And hearing all the news.
And finding some great deals while thrift shopping.
And absolutely gorgeous temperatures on Monday and Tuesday.
And an amazing date night with my wonderful husband to hear Andrew Peterson in concert!
But there was also the not so wonderful parts.
Lots of snow.
And chasing cows off the road because a limb knocked down the fence.
Lots of mud.
And another broken burner on my stove.
And late nights and early mornings.
And dropping my son off at the airport and watching him fly away. Again.
Today is a day to dig out from last week.
To finally finish up all the things that got suspended in the busyness of life.
To wash the piles of laundry.
Replace the stove.
Repot the poor seedlings who are anxious to be in the ground.
And slow down for a few minutes to savor it all.
To take a deep breath and be thankful.
