One day I will be: Mom Extraordinaire, Chef Supreme, Everyday-Vacuumer, Wife With the Mostest, Photographer of the Universe, World Traveler, etc., etc., etc.
But when do I sleep? Crap.
It's constant, this wrestling with all the things I want to be, while dealing with all the things I am at the moment, which include: Master Procrastinator, 12 Hour Sleeper (yes it's possible- I do it at least once a week), Clothes Dryer Over-Stuffer, Please-God-Don't-Make-Me-Fold-More-Laundry-er, Asparagus Over-Cooker, Short-Tempered by 4pm-er, etc., etc., etc.,
I was thinking about all these things this morning while the house was quiet. With Summer here, and the boys home every. single. day, it's become much more apparent that I have a hard time doing it all. And sometimes I wonder if I even want it all?
I've decided, for now anyways, to give myself abounding grace- to breathe deeply and remember that summers with my boys are dwindling by the year and that life doesn't have to be figured out right this second. Some days I'll have it all together and some days I'll snuggle back under the covers and take those 12 hours of sleep like a champ.
Hopefully though, I'll continue to look for the light, both through my lens and through my heart. I'll continue to seek LOVE and to remain grounded in that love. I'll approach each day with a grateful heart, and through that gratefulness I'll find peace aplenty. And I'm also hoping to make more images just for the fun of it, like these. :)
