My heart is happy. Although there are many things left undone for the day, there are many more things fulfilled. Sometimes I ruin a happy heart by racing to get everything undone complete. I’m coming to realize there will always be things undone at the end of the evening. My life is too full right now to expect any other outcome. And so I choose a happy heart because today I —
loved and was loved back
smiled at a mistake
listened and listened more
washed, folded, and put away two loads of laundry
cooked two new recipes for dinner
cleaned the kitchen for Andy
ran long-overdue errands
read silly books at bedtime
rubbed my daughter’s back
blew kisses to my son
soaked in the still silence
wrote about the simple things
Really, do the things left undone really matter?
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
