I create rules…because I love a good plan…and then I break the rules when they no longer serve me well.
Today was a lovely day. There were many great moments. Yet, it wasn’t exploding with grateful photos. I am a bit behind on the photographic evidence of all that I am grateful for. I am stuck between reveling in the moment and documenting moments. What I enjoy that seems to be happening is I am grateful for a different kind of noticing that is happening. I am noticing when a picture isn’t enough. I LOVE it when I hear a song that I really like from someone I’ve never heard before. That happened recently with George Ezra and Budapest. No picture will match that moment. Eryka Badu singing harmony with her children? Are you kidding me? How can a picture capture the glory in that??? Wow! Choosing a baby gift and reveling in all the joy that is on the way…I love that too. Kissing my boys as they tell me about their day and inhale a snack I just fixed…LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Making lunch dates instead of thinking about it…driving to hug a friend while they are in town just because I can.
Googling how to program my thermostat and then programming it!!! Closet organization (sort of)…flannel sheets!!
Beautiful ordinary connections.
