I’m not gonna lie. Right now, life feels a bit crazy and messy and overwhelming. I feel pulled in a hundred different directions with no idea which ones to attend to first.
Some days in this transition to two little ones under two….I feel like freaking super woman. I’ve knocked off all the things on my list, taken all the right silly little pills, gone for a walk, posted to the blog, tended the garden and animals, kept everyone clothed, fed and bathed and even managed to bathe myself and pee.
Other days I feel like one hot mess. One kids melting down, the other one is crapping in the bathtub….or on the floor….or rubbing it into the carpet, dinners burning, the laundry got forgotten in the wash, all the freaking squash plants are dying. You know those days.
Two steps forward and one step back is still progress….right?
When times like this hit it’s hard to think….or move….or function even.
And when this is what happens the best thing in the world is to sneak out of the house and walk and talk a short while with the one who made all this beauty. To find just a moment of beautiful calm in the middle of the craziness.
Something that makes you forget that you still haven’t strung up the tomatoes. Or planted the new squash.
That the grass needs mowing and the dishes are waiting.
Those things can wait.
This moment to stop and breathe….can’t.
So today when things get crazy. Take a minute. And find something beautiful to hold onto.
And then jump back into the craziness and be grateful for it. Grateful for the babies to care for, the dinner to cook, and the garden to tend and the clothes to wash.
