Remembering that in this season of my life, these two are my most important work. <3
I love creating. I love working. I have a million ideas and I crave uninterrupted time with my thoughts.
But that is not the season I am in. I am in the season of interruptions, sippy cups, scooter rides and “Mommy, play with me!”
It’s not that I don’t want to do all of those things. It’s just that I have so many things that I want to do. And time seems to be fleeting and I sometimes feel like I’m not moving fast enough. I want to do all the things right now and I get anxious that I’m running out of time.
But then I slow down long enough to look at my life and realize that I’m right where I’m meant to be, at this very moment. And I only have them home with me for a short period of time. And that once they are gone and living their own lives, I will wish I had poured more of my time into leading them. Not just caretaking and doing the bare minimum but actually treating them as if they were my life’s work.
So, girls, here I am. Trusting that I’m in this season to create and nurture the most important masterpieces of my life.
But make no mistake… that nap-time hour? That’s all mine, little peanuts. All MINE. ;P
