This is how I like to start a perfect Saturday.
Coffee and a list.
Organizing my day.
So much laid out ahead to do.
Projects to finish,
cleaning that needs done,
starting something new.
I love a list.
Crossing things off as they are finished,
nothing looks better than to have it done!
A sense of accomplishment.
it comes with a sharpened perspective for me.
What is really important?
Instead of rushing headlong into this list,
I am deciding what has to be done?
what can wait?
What do I enjoy doing?
reminding myself to take my time
Savor the moments,
All of them.
Don't get annoyed at the interruptions.
Choose what it really important
minimize what is not.
So, it is with a heavy heart I start my day.
Friends of ours received devastating news this week.
In a family that has had more than they should bear anyway,
I grapple with the "why?"
They have been beaten and bruised,
they are such an example
to those around them.
I will start my day.
