Things that make my heart sing: crisp autumn days, clear blue skies, colorful leaves, watching my children play, happy faces.
It doesn’t take a lot. And, it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Getting home from school today I breathed a sigh of relief.
The weekend begins now. And although it’s going to be a crazy one; with visitors, three sports, a school event, a birthday party and a scout event; it’s still the weekend.
Which means I get this girl, and her brothers, for the next two days.
Admittedly, my time with them will be intermittent at best, as we hurry from one activity to another. But with blue skies and sunshine forecast, it will be a weekend to savor.
And it certainly started well, with running and leaf throwing and lots of laughter, and a bit of tree climbing when I wasn’t looking! I love these blue sky autumn days, surrounded by crunchy leaves and warm colors, hot drinks awaiting us once we head inside from the garden.
Life has just been busy. It’s always busy. And, while I may imagine a day when it is less busy, I know deep down that really, there is a limit to how ‘less busy’ it can ever be.
And, I’m okay with that. As long as it’s never so busy that I can’t make time for moments like these.
For the moments that make my heart sing.
Getting through my to-do list, getting to the end of the week without forgetting an activity or appointment. Getting to the end of the week with my sanity intact! These are all good things, things I hope for every week. But, they are not the things that make my heart sing.
So, here’s to more leaf piles to jump in and throw in the air. Here’s to more laughter and smiles. And, here’s to taking the time to enjoy them.
