Today I am not inclined toward handstands.... but maybe I need to be.
Today the kids want to play. I say, "It's Monday, there's stuff to do."
But what if I gave up stressing? Gave up the worry, just right now and said, "It's okay that you all have built a fort in the living room, that there's a million barbies everywhere, that you want yet more toys out...so what, let's just play."
What if these were my words, my thoughts for today rather than the financial worries, the schoolwork tensions.
Would it be so unacceptable if today I remembered to be grateful that my kids are still young enough to play and that this time is short. What if I just changed perspective?
Grateful today for:
living room forts
cartwheels on carpet
the cooling weather
a job in today's economy
casting my cares on Him
