First, this post got my attention.
Then I saw this.
And then there was this on Instagram.
And I knew I wanted to try something new, pairing words and pictures and getting back to Monday mindfulness.
When we first installed the clothesline, it was a whim. I knew it would take longer, slow down the laundry process. But it is just the two of us and we don't need to wash and dry every day. I fell in love with hanging my wash on the line. It could not be rushed. It felt like going back in time a bit. And there was that amazing scent as I fluffed and folded the dry laundry.
Busy-ness can be a badge I wear like a blinder. There are times when I use it as an excuse when an simple NO would be more honest. It can be a pit that I fall into, woe is me, so very busy. As we launch a new school year, I know there will be days, even weeks, when the calendar boxes are full. But I want very much to take those days as they come, not as an indicator of anything more than a very full life. And on those days when the little box is empty, I want to celebrate.
What word is filling your mind and heart on this beautiful Monday?
