Expect some light blogging this week. I have three recipes to create, a house to clean, an article to write, a few pieces of furniture to cover with polyurethane, a Bible study lesson to attend, a violin lesson to suffer through, and the day job to work before Wednesday at 9:00 p.m.
But. I'll get it all done or shove things in closets to hide them as necessary.
My weekend included some great fun. &'s birthday was spent doing random activities involving coffee and food, and random acts of kindness. Sunday my mom, sister-in-law and & went to a women's event at our local conference center. Outside the conference center we spied the tiniest and cutest oak tree full of acorns. So cute.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
