Edited to Add: This finally shook out yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and once I settled in to the theme it floated out and quick! Then I found out that today’s Five Minute Friday topic is “rest.” I felt like I’d had a mind-merge with The Gypsy Mama. 😉 So I’m just gonna go ahead and link up with this one.
My brain is sloshy.
Words don’t want to come.
I feel like I’ve been so tired–behind the eyes tired–for over a year now.
I’m the mother of 3 busies one of whom is a baby What do I expect?
I love moments of rest–time to snuggle under a cover, or a chance to sit down with a good book.
Baby asleep on my chest and no chores pressing enough to make me move.
I welcome cool breezes at the end of each day who invite me to sit. They’ve never beckoned so strongly before.
Moments, even just moments, at the beach listening to the waves crash give rest to my heart.
All of them moments, just moments in the midst of the busy and chaotic
Pinpricks of rest.
Still, somehow when I give myself the spaciousness of soul to recognize them.
They are enough.
