I wish that I could have one thing that I was interested in and do it. To just enjoy one thing and get really, really super good at it. But no–I can’t. I love to knit, but before knitting it was crochet, quilting, scrapbooking, cooking, gardening, running, having pets–dogs, cats, fish, birds and any stray anything that needs food and water, pottery and jewelry making.
When my daughter was asked at school what she wanted to be she said “an artist, teacher, Mom, animal shelter worker, hair cutter (she did have too much emphasis on the cutting part), and food network/cooker. I thought to myself she will have the same trouble in life in deciding what to do. At least she can come and visit my basement and “shop” for her latest passion.
In getting ready for this move I have been thinking about what I should focus on for this season of my life. I’m only thinking and not coming up with ideas of what I could eliminate or thin out. It is like getting rid of all my baby stuff–a mourning process needs to begin. I’m not quite there yet.
One thing is for sure–breakfast, lunch, dinner, laundry, sweeping the floor, and keeping everyone going in forward motion–will fill my day.
Thank you God for giving me the grace to do what I do over and over and remain a joyful mom–mostly.
