Two weeks ago I could tell you what was happening every day from that point on until today. I might have had to pause to remember which family members would be working or in this state or traveling, but I had it all figured out. Other than feeling a little tired in anticipation of the jam-packed two weeks, I was ready.
I’m not sure when things began to unravel, but unravel they did. The days got away from me and I felt like I was always behind, trying to keep up. I held on to some strands longer than others. I was able to keep up with my writing until last Wednesday when I slipped down the side of the mountain and now that I’m nearly at the bottom and the Friday deadline is looming, I’m not quite sure how this will play out. Oddly enough, other than total exhaustion on Thanksgiving day and a volatile three year old who spent the day sharing his many mood swings smack dab in the middle of the kitchen during food prep, the meal was prepared, edible, and somewhat on time. We are wrapping up a busy two weeks and preparing to pick up the pieces of everyday life until the next holiday hits!
I am thankful, grateful, and blessed for-
A quiet and spacious writing space during my weekend away
Not too cold weather during my conference weekend
Whether they were delayed by hours or showed up early, the safe arrivals and departures of our loved ones
Sharing a meal with as many of my people as we could gather
Celebrating our youngest family member’s birthday as only a preschooler can!
The pictures might be slightly blurry with wonky colors, but the memories are sharp and in focus.
Sunday Stills- Thankful
Ragtag Daily Prompt- Grateful
Wishing you a belated and blessed Thanksgiving!
