Our wonderful Jamie asked us this morning..."How do you wish to spend some time?" As always she hit the nail on the head.
This week I am suppose to be on vacation..sigh. I am so to speak..no extra children here..but am busy dealing with issues that I would rather not and finding ways to bring in extra income for next month. I would like to be at the beach...or in the mountains..or reading for a whole day straight. Not gonna happen this week. The last two summer breaks I took from teaching have been filled with a staph infection one year and the swine flu last year. So am a bit annoyed at this point that it is going this way this year. But...at least I am not ill!! Huge blessing :)
So given the dye is cast a bit here..and I have to do things other than kick back and relax...at least some of that time will be spent doing artwork...and this is good. I guess I will wish for today...just to be present..to breathe through some of this stress that is hanging over my head...and maybe a bit of time just reading...and sitting..even if it is just one day of ten...just that would be ok with me.
So today I wish for one day during my vacation that folks are happy and ok around me and that I can let go of the stress and just relax...and read...just for one day this week. That would work for me. What do you wish today?
