Perspective

So.

Things have been a little crazy around here lately. That's not new news. But under the craziness is a deeper restlessness and weariness in my bones...in my soul.

And earlier today, I read a post on a new blog I've found (and love, by the way). And I can't believe how much I related to Emily's words.

So, if you need any further explanation as to why I'm clinging to little nuggets of happiness like finding my gold shimmery lip gloss, read this. That's where I'm am.

Jim comes home tonight (and, no, he hasn't found the USB cord, so no pictures to come any time soon), and then it's a full-on press to get 'er done by Saturday, so....see y'all on the flip side of the weekend!

You need a break! I feel that too. I am looking forward to next week as a chance to catch my breath. I hope you do too!

Shimmery lip gloss makes EVERYTHING better, no doubt. Lip gloss is the only mental "rest" you can get right now, so enjoy it! My mental "rest" this week has been donuts. Equally satisfying but with more consequences. ;) Every day gets closer to your new home and getting settled! Lots of hugs, D.

The very essence of humankind is to cling to happiness, or people who bring it into our lives.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Cheers

Wow..that was a great post. She -like so many other bloggers- put words to feelings I could never articulate properly...thanks for linking that!
You should check out "Invitation to Solitude and Silence" by Ruth Haley Barton. I started reading it this week during my media fast, and it really spoke to me about the need to quiet my soul...
