My little guy asked to ride his bike to school today. It was drizzling. The old me thought, nope, another day. The new me thought nope, and then shifted to why not?!
So he geared up and I got Georgia and the umbrella and off we went.
About a 1/4 mile in, between helping him start riding once he stopped, holding the umbrella and keeping Georgia close I thought to myself I can’t do it all. Something has to give.
It can’t be the child, or the dog, so the umbrella rested against the fence while we continued on.
Isn’t that so true about life? We try and juggle a few things at once, we feel discombobulated and aren’t able to give our full attention where it is needed?
I share this with you in case any of you feel like I did today, taking on too much and not being able to focus on what’s most important.
I invite you to join me to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
May we choose to lay down what isn’t necessary so we may focus our attention on what is necessary and important.
After patiently persevering, Matty, Georgia and I arrived at school. I am thankful for this memory and for this awareness. I hope to carry it with me moving forward, starting first by putting my phone down now and spending time talking with Stephen😊
With love and hope,
