Wonderful Wednesday

Back on New Year's Day when I wrapped up my "Holiday Great-ful-ness" entries I said I would still pause to be thankful as needed....

Today was a really nice day because it was very well balanced, and I am so thankful for it.  That's my word, balance.  I took care of my responsibilities like getting kids clean, fed and off to school and household chores.  Then I got to have some me time before Mark got off work.  He and I took care of a couple more responsibilities...a little more me time...and then the kids arrived home.  They had snacks and Cami did her homework (no math today!) and I did another chore.  We all did our own things for awhile and then I got up and made dinner.  And so on and so forth...

Oh!  I'm forgetting that it was sunny so I went out and did a lap around our neighborhood!

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
