it all happens so fast. the morning rush. breakfast. dishes cluttering a clean sink. kids in and out. up and down. noise. laughter. sunlight. papers scattered everywhere. skateboards. shoes by the stairs.
a daddy long legs spider in someone’s bath towel. which becomes drama enough that he wants you to be in the bathroom with him while he bathes. just in case the spider crawls into said bath with him.
he’s no sooner out of the water and he wants to make a volcano.
but she needs her hair braided.
and then the big boys are making plans to go to boxing tonite.
but i had dinner plans with my mom.
my sister-in-law calls. she wants to go to dinner too.
two invitations for one night?
and i can’t do either.
because there is just too much to be done.
and all i really want to do is: sit in my favorite chair. enjoy my fruit salad. do a little embroidery. watch the little people play catch. and wait for my daffodil to bloom.
waiting for your first daffodil to bloom is a lot like waiting for a baby to be born. you know something beautiful is so close. but it’s just not quite ready yet.
we are such impatient creatures.
and life really is so beautiful. here. and now.
happy week-ending, friends. enjoy your here. and now.
