We are into the second week of summer, and this week has been an unusual one. In a good way. All six of my children are attending VBS this week. At four years old, my youngest son is finally able to participate, and my oldest can be a helper. So, everyday this week, I dropped them off and had two-and-a-half hours all to myself!
Back when I signed them up, I expected to get a bunch of stuff done in that timeframe. Things like decluttering and cleaning. But in the past week or so, I have been experiencing some (new) health issues, my energy level is really low, and I have some pain in my foot. (So weird.) Rather than beating myself up about what I can’t accomplish right now, I used this alone time for rest and peace, things I really need. (God alone could have given me the wisdom to be inspired to do this.)
1. On Tuesday, I went to Adoration. Afterward, I got an iced coffee, sat outside and read my book.
2. Yesterday, I went shopping for new shoes.
3. This week, I also went to see my doctor, who gave me hope! She has a new theory about what is going on with me, and I really believe this could be it. We’ll see …
