One Day Less - Time for Me

Day 11

It's hard to write this in the middle of the day.  I don't feel all spiritual like I do in the wee hours of the morning with my prayers and my coffee when it's the early afternoon and I'm in the throes of tantrums and dishes and lessons.  But last night was one of those nights and somehow the alarm didn't wake me up and got shut off so I was up the same time as the rest of the house.  And that makes today one of those days.   The days where I feel I'm scrambling to catch up and I'm edgy with the kids and things just don't flow.  Blog posts included.  The tight ship gives way to what feels like white water rafting.  Except that it really doesn't have to be like that.  Can I let go of the resentment of lost sleep and lost time for myself and lost productivity to just accept that this day for what it is?  Can I just enjoy the ride?  I don't know.  I can try.  I've been writing these posts and they are so helpful for me to think things through but that doesn't mean I'm making leaps and bounds in my spiritual growth perfectly accomplishing each day's goal (ha!).  It just means I know where they need to happen.  Which is a start, I suppose.  

Today, there's less time for me.  For someone who gains energy and renewal from that time alone, this is hard.  But by the grace of God I'll white knuckle my way through it and maybe, possibly, even enjoy the ride a bit.

  1. This is SO hard for me. Like, so hard. When things get thrown off (be it sleep/etc...) I hold on to it all.day. And then, it takes away the entire day :( Thanks for this.
