Life is still on hyperspeed... All of it good, though as I've mentioned I prefer a slower pace. It seems that the girls are going to be traveling to the valley to spend spring break with friends. That means that while Larry is at work I'll be home... alone... all day. I'm tempted to turn the telephone off and lock the doors, quietly hiding with a good book and my knitting. We'll see. Though it sounds good, soon I would probably be the one picking up the phone and re-opening the lines of communication. Isn't life like that? As my mother always says, "it's either feast or famine!" I almost sent Audrey back to Montana with Hannah for a few days and I'm so glad that I kept her home. Something just didn't feel right and now I know that we all just needed a short break before more chaos.
Today, eight year old Charity will help me make a pot of soup for a sick friend as my girls will be at a gathering helping to make wedding announcements for our sweet engaged Alycia. This weekend I look forward to a visit from my daughter and son in law, a baby shower for our friend Halley and a wild get together/sleep over with the best friends a gal could have. The storm before the calm so to speak.
It's times like these that I take a breath and thank God for my family and friends. When things are buzzing and I feel like my brain needs a break I remind myself why. It's because I am richly blessed with people to love and people who love me. Who can complain about that?
