to be honest…..

more often than not, i mess it all up.

i get caught up in to do lists and house chores.

i fuss the kids. i stress about messes and clutter.

i spend too much time doing things that do not fill me up.

i arrive at the end of the day grumbly and spent.

did i go outside, i wonder. did i soak up this beautiful summer sun.

and not to check on laughing kids or take the compost out,

but did i really, really choose to stop and take it all in.

the truth is, not often enough.

and then i do.

and my heart fills with wonder at what is right there, waiting all the time.

tiny flowers, berries, bees, sunshine.

grace, earth, peace.

it's been awhile, they whisper.

i know, i whisper back.

laughing, tadpoles, water.

wet feet.

full hearts.

these are the the thing memories are made of.

evening light and summer sun…..

 

xo,

  1. Thanks for your honesty! I think we all feel this way sometimes. I know I’ve been more caught up in coming home then in enjoying the last few weeks here. I’m trying to remedy that while also battling the mosquitoes!
