Life is busy. Most of the time I fight against this fact. I hate not being able to sit and soak more; I am annoyed when I can’t just pop over to family and friends’ houses for an afternoon. I remember days when mom had ladies over, days when we would go nowhere at all, days we would spend hanging out at an auction, days of relaxing…
…the problem is with remembering, I lump my whole life into one week’s worth of experiences. I say, “I remember days of not going anywhere” or “I remember doing this and such.” I forget that those memories came in seasons of life. Seasons that have stretched over *ahem* 31 years of life. There are days when I do still stay home all day, days where I get a ton of work done, days where I visit family and friends. I can’t do everything all the time, but I can do many things over time.
“Busy” is good as long as I pair it with “flexible” and “caring” and “relaxing here and there.”
Anyway, those are my thoughts for the moment. Now for some pictures of the last month…of the family gatherings and vacations, of the house renovation, of the adventures and relaxation.
Vacation with the Kings to Idaho and New Mexico to see Caleb’s grandma and Tom:
Work on the house (we upgraded from doing dishes in the bathtub to having a real sink!):
Building my Etsy shop:
Misc. family and church activities:
And, yes, relaxing:
Life is full, and that makes life good.
