Journal Entry ~
Too much life today. I woke up and felt as if I was being bombarded with life-y kinds of things! Activities, responsibilities, chores, sensations, emotions, the whole thing. Life being life not in tiny little bits and pieces but in great big, full screen, full color 3D, full volume surround sound happenings! Yes overwhelmingly so. So I laid there and took a few deep breaths and then I stared my day but I began to notice what I had missed earlier.
Children giggling. Cat’s purring nearby with affection. Dogs tails wagging in happiness, the timber of the voices coming from those whom I love discussing their accomplishments or activities for the day. I stepped outside and inhaled the fresh air, a mild day today. dew on the grass, not frost, a few birds singing in the trees and squirrels racing about.
And I knew then there wasn’t too much life today … there wasn’t enough! And I smiled and officially started my day over again. this time with a smile on my face, grace in my soul and thankfulness in my heart!
