Sometimes you just need to lay in the grass and take in the big, blue sky.
I captured that sweet moment up there last night. I was up to my elbows in soapy dish water and slightly irritated that theBOY decided to take bigSIS out to hunt for ripe tomatoes.
I wanted her to be in the bathtub getting ready for bed so I could tend to my to-do list guilt-free.
When I stopped to see if their tomato hunt was done yet, I saw them laying there.
I didn’t realize until later that night (when the to-do’s were all done) that I could learn from those dawdlers.
As I rushed around inside checking off my list, they laid leisurely in the soft grass. Neither of them had the next thing on their minds. They were only concerned with the current thing.
The big blue sky.
The story bigSIS was sharing.
The taste of the first ripe cherry tomato of the year. For the record, I’m told it was yummy. And red.
How does a hurry-to-get-it-done girl like me learn to let the dishes stay dirty for another 30 minutes so I don’t miss out on the current thing?
I don’t have the answer, but I sure hope recognizing that fault of mine is a first step.
Are you able to let the chores go and live in the messy moment of the current thing happening?
P.S. I’ve got something brewing that I’m beyond excited about, and it involves YOU if you’re willing to join in the fun. Stay tuned!
