Today was a blessing. Small break in a never ending week of rain. We woke to dry skies and decided to DO SOMETHING! So we packed up a lunch and headed out with the wagon to Pirate Park. Truly, it was a gorgeous walk. I couldn't help but wonder if it would be the last time I walked the trail to Pirate Park. I am trying hard to just *enjoy* my life right now...just BE in the moment.
I like to research, I like to know as much as I can about whatever I am getting into. I am learning about the housing market, the taxes, the weather. I am searching for apartments, houses, builders. Oh, and we need to go to this bank, talk to that realtor, call this friend. Where did we put those packing supplies, when should we schedule our walk through, oh, and buy those airplane tickets, the sale ends soon! I would classify myself as 'detail oriented'. It can be good, it can be helpful. But it can be heavy too. Whenever I feel the heaviness I try to remember something that Henry David Thoreau said: "Our life is frittered away by detail...simplify, simplify."
So I did. I tried to. And that is why today was a blessing. I feel like I saw, and heard, and touched, and even smelled the things that were most important. A beautiful day worth remembering, in all its simplicity.
