Can't Seem to Focus
I have been itching to write, but can't focus long enough to type anything worth reading. The fact that I am writing now does not insinuate that I have finally had a brain storm. More like a brain cramp. But, still, type I must!
I thought of listing all the reasons why I'm so out of focus. But, LOOKING at the list was almost as "fun" as DOING the list. Why should I subject my dear readers to my life? Like you don't have your own "to-do" lists.
I thought of telling you about how one of my children told me they were going to bake cookies today, but I am more inclined to believe they were testing a new bomb for the government. But, I didn't think it appropriate to embarrass said-child.
I contemplated writing about how I'm getting to go away with the love of my life for seven...yes, SEVEN...days in a couple of weeks to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. But, then that got me thinking about all the things I have to do between now and then...no good.
Want to hear about the poor kitten that froze to death on our porch?
See what I mean? Totally out of focus. Life is so crazy, deadlines are hanging over my head and I can't think. I actually stopped by the library tonight while shopping just to be able to sit and read a book for a half hour because I knew I could relax there...somewhat. So much to do...
Typing all this has allowed me to see a bit more clearly. I am forming a new "to-do" list even now:
Be still my soul...Breathe. Meditate. Give Thanks. Sing a quiet song. Talk to the One for Whom I ought to be living. Go on about my day...moment by moment.
Thanks for listening. Things are beginning to focus nicely.
