Even when given lots of unexpected time (multiple snow days), there never seems to be enough.
Not enough time to plan.
Not enough time to be frugal (don't you agree that it takes time to save money?)
And certainly, never enough time to get everything done.
When there just isn't enough time to get it all done. When there seems to be too many things on the list to do and not enough hours in the day to do them. When there are so many things that need (and want) to get done, it can be overwhelming....
...then I remember how unbelievably blessed I am. I am so blessed that I have such wonderful friends and family that need and want my attention. I am blessed that I have a home that needs taking care of and laundry that needs to be washed. I am blessed that I have to load the dishwasher so many times in a week, because it means that I have the means to cook wonderful meals and all kinds of food to fill our tummies. I am blessed to have a job that I love and students that need me. I am blessed.
...then I remind myself, to ENJOY. Enjoy the blessings and get done what I can. Don't sweat the small stuff. And don't get so busy with the motions that you forget why you're doing them in the first place.
My goal this year is to enjoy the time I have
and to stop worrying about the time I wish I had.
Life is too short not to.
