I've noticed that more and more often when people describe their lives their first adjective it busy. And, yes, it's true. We are all so busy and getting busier all the time. But, I think there are better adjectives we can use. Let me show you what I mean.
The short story of a our busy week Last weekend we had company & no time to do regular weekend activities like laundry and grocery shopping. This put us behind all week. Jeffrey has a TOUGH Master's class, a big project, and a mid-term next Tuesday to study for. This is the final week of this quarter so we had tests and grade reports to add to the usual craziness of a teacher's life. On Wednesday we found out that the carpet installers can finally come and make up their previously canceled time. If they didn't come Wednesday, they couldn't come for a month. So, they did carpet on Wednesday. We had company coming on Thursday so we had to stay up most of the night putting our house back together. Then, company arrived on Thursday afternoon. We still hadn't had time to do laundry or grocery shopping.
The short story of our full and blessed week
Last weekend we got to spend the entire weekend with Grammy. Oh boy, did we have fun. Including setting up a blog for her. Then we had a chance to see just how much our students had learned this past quarter. In the middle of the week we were blessed enough to have new carpet through our entire house. It's gorgeous! My sweet mother knew we were in a time bind so she gave up her evening and came to help us put the house back together. Just a day later we had some of our best friends come visit from Oregon. Best of all, we still have the entire weekend to enjoy time with them. What could be better?
Yes, my life is busy. But, I prefer the word full. I believe that our words affect our attitudes. And, I believe our attitudes affect everything. What things are making your life full and blessed right now? I really do want to know what's going on with you.
