Embracing.


Today was going to be a day where I ran errands and cleaned the kitchen and did laundry.

Today was going to be a day where I caught up.

Then suddenly it changed to today was going to be a snow day where we all stayed home and slept in and played games.

Today was going to be a day where we drank hot chocolate and laughed and watched a family movie. And it would be okay if the kitchen wasn't clean or the laundry wasn't finished or I wasn't "caught up."

Them today suddenly turned into a snowy non-snow day where there is still school, but two kiddos are home sick anyway. There are few dishes getting done, very little laundry being folded and almost no "catching up" getting accomplished.

There are no games being played and there is not much laughter (because it's reported that hurts tender lungs). BUT, I think there is some hot chocolate and maybe a movie forthcoming.

And the rest of life can wait. And that's okay. Because there will be a time not too far down the road when I find myself yearning for a snowy non-snow sick day. I will yearn for cluttered counters and someone needing laundry done. And there will be no more kiddos laying on the couch saying, "Mom, please come watch a movie with us?"
