I prayed for patients, temper control (my fuse was short), and kindness. By lunch time I knew that things were going to change. We enjoyed a nice peaceful lunch and then I laid down the law that everyone was taking a nap. Not just rest, but a nap.
When I went to check in on Megan I had to smile. It looks like she took the "everyone" part literally and put all of her friends to bed!
After a nice rest things were back to normal. Thank goodness!!
When dinner was complete I realized that I didn't empty the dishwasher. I was in a time crunch to be somewhere and thought that it would be more time efficient to just hand wash the dishes.
There is something simple and soothing about hand washing dishes.
Some time was spent outside.
Sweeping up leaves for the fun part.
It seems that jumping in a pile of leaves is timeless.
My parents are out of town and while over checking mail and setting out trash we picked tomatoes. There is the possibility of frost and we wanted to make sure they didn't go to waste.
This day was a great reminder that for life to be good it doesn't have to be perfect.
This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
