Can't believe it's already August! Time goes by so fast its almost scary sometimes. Whatever happened to the days when summers seemed to last forever!! When I was a kid, summers were soooo long! Now it feels like it's just a rushed few months trying to keep up with busy schedules. Swim lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tennis on Saturday unless it rains then tennis will be on Friday. Oh and I have to schedule some "me" time. What are we doing this weekend...what weekend can we fit that in..who can we go visit during this weekend?? AHH!!
I love to keep busy but sometimes I feel like maybe I should rejoice in having nothing to do. Maybe that is why summers as a kid felt like forever b/c we never did anything really..lol. My parents rarely signed us up for activities and definitely not at 5 years old. A few weeks ago or maybe a few months (I often lose track) I read a blog from a pastor that told people to live "one square at a time". Meaning don't be so concerned with what's going to happen 2 weeks from now...a month from now. Enjoy the day you are in...live one square on the calendar at a time! O Lord please help me to do this.
It's funny on a Monday people at work may say..."is it Friday yet?"...OMG I'm not kidding...Friday comes so fast..they don't even have to say that! I wish the days would slow down more. I wish I could go back to Monday.
I think I should challenge myself to enjoy each square on the calendar for this last month on summer!
My daughter often comes home from daycamp so eager to show me a new game she's learned. Last night she showed me a card game called "Skip-O"? Two players get 12 cards each..and they make 2 lines of 6 cards. We try to line up the cards so they will appear to go in order 1-12. It's a cute little game. Her being an only child I am her friend in the evenings to play with and she often wants to play over and over again. When I would like nothing other than to lay on the cough and not move! But last night and tonight we played "Skip-O" over and over again and it was fun!!
Lord help me to enjoy one square at a time and allow me to blog about what I learn day by day!!
