a moment

The sun is shining and there is a lawn full of dew. I have opened the windows and it is breezy and cool. I was slightly overwhelmed by the chaos of my home. Every room is a disaster and I am not overstating this. I had words with my daughter - about something so ridiculous - I hate starting the morning this way.

I stepped outside and realized the sun was shining and just how beautiful the day promised to be. I took a deep breath and prayed "Glory to God, who has shown us the light." I asked my children to be more attentive to their world and we move forward.

Maybe I need to help them be more organized. Maybe they need things written down. Maybe I expect too much from my 13 year olds.

I will do as much as I am able, I will slow down and breathe. I will go to my pilates class.

As it goes.
