As I recall stating before,
I follow many blogs and most are scrapbook blogs.
One of those is julie-bonner.blogspot.com
today she shares of being so overwhelmed, trying to be
everything to everyone.
I use her quote:
"NORMAL DAY, LET ME BE AWARE OF THE
TREASURE YOU ARE. LET ME LEARN FROM YOU,
LOVE YOU, BLESS YOU BEFORE YOU DEPART.
DO NOT LET ME PASS YOU BY IN THE QUEST
OF SOME RARE AND PERFECT TOMORROW.
-mary jean irion
This quote just when my thoughts this morning
were about myself accepting today where my life is.
It has taken me some time to shut off the 5:30am
alarm and not feel guilty if I can't get up early
and start my day as I once did.
So what if I wake up at 9 because I didn't sleep good the
day before. yesterday I did some spring cleaning in my bedroom.
It was needed, I took my time, and I felt good about the
fact that I did something productive.
I thanked the day because I felt well enough to do it.
And even though I may be sore and pay for it today,
I am still happy today that I did it.
I did not take for granted the normal day.
I am getting better about this new life I call retirement.
I would be lying if I said I did not still long for
the work day and the children.
I am better than I was last week and if every
week is a little better then I will call this success.
Today is going to be a great one
as I have a baby shower of one of my TES family
and then movies with the two besties, Laurie and Ann
and Laurie's kiddies who I miss so much!
A beautiful day to be enjoyed, a normal day,
not to be wasted.
