and thinking on the mental lists:
i need to call ___, oh and i forgot to talk to jason about _____, my kitchen is a mess, that corner of the floor is gross, that's right-- never folded that laundry, what is the heart issue going on when my kid does that? i need to pray about that, is this all the food we have? ooo that would make a great pillow design...
and on and on and on
and i sit. slowly turning my head from pile to pile. and still i sit.
on days like this, it is hard to cling to the small accomplishments. hard to make a list of just 7 things and get those 7 things done. hard to take the 15 minutes to sit with my kids and do what THEY want to do.
and i don't see what's right in front of me. like 'sculptures':
i don't know the solution. i'm sure it has something to do with balance and gratitude. but i can't grasp it this morning.
i'll try to make a list of 7. i'll try it. and i'll TRY to let go of some other things. and i will sit with my kids. i will and watch the small accomplishments add up.
