When it rains it pours, or so the saying goes.
There have been several days of rain these past couple of weeks, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. My to-do list drastically shrinks when it rains. Maybe I should buy a rain machine to use over my house when I'm feeling overwhelmed with so much to do. There's a thought.
My family has also rained some special blessings on me lately. Beautiful flowers and delicious cookies for Mother's Day. Impromptu hugs and I love you's. An eagerness to help sort laundry, vacuum steps, and empty the dishwasher. Wonderful moments with my kids.
But back to that to do list that still needs to shrink. Today is Monday and we leave on Saturday. Between now and then, there is a lot to do. A whole, whole lot. Each evening has commitments: church meeting, friends coming for dinner, last Awana meeting, homeschool meeting, final soccer game and celebration. Each day has commitments: laundry, packing, groceries, school work, a hospital visit, therapy appointments, and a promised Chuck E Cheese visit.
Psalm 118:24, "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and me glad in it."
