Life won't wait




I wish I had a good excuse, but I don't.  I had to drag myself to the keyboard tonight.  Life has been happening all around me.  In a good way.  In the best way.  

I've been writing.  I've been reading.  I've been loving, and living, and breathing.

What more can a person ask for?

Not much really.

But if I could, I'd ask for more time.  But I don't want more time for the mundane.  I don't want more hours in the day for chores, for dishes, for laundry.  I don't want more time for phone calls and emails, or Target trips.

I want more time for kisses before bed.  I want more time for after dinner ice cream sandwiches.  I want more time for late night giggles, while watching that hilarious movie with the one you love, while the kids sleep soundly.  I want more time to breathe, to think, to feel.

But I since I can't squeeze any more hours out of a day, I'll stop and enjoy those hours instead.  Away from the keyboard, away from the sink, away from the washing machine.  And I won't apologize.

Because the mundane can wait.

Life won't.

  1. I'm really trying to focus more on the enjoyable moments. The treats. Letting up some on my teens and letting go of some of the control. It's hard - but sometimes it's okay if they want Ramen Noodles for dinner (my 12 y/o favorite) and it's okay if they want to watch The Walking Dead. And it's okay to not feel like I have to fill every minute with barking about homework, clean rooms and laundry. Because I have a JR, a Freshman and a 7th grader - and I will blink and they will all be gone.

  2. I agree with not wanting time for the mundane stuff (except Target trips... I always want more time for that. ;) ) and wanting more time for the simple little things that makes all the mundane stuff worth it. :)
