Well, I missed writing here in March because it was such a blur. At the beginning of the month, I found myself eagerly anticipating (but inwardly dreading) a busy few weeks ahead. I was trying to be positive and excited about things, but to be completely honest, I was feeling quite overwhelmed. I was trying to take things one day at a time, but our schedule seemed very, very full. At the time, I didn't know how to cut anything. It all seemed necessary. Fast forward a few weeks, and it has become clear that we didn't actually need to be doing all of those things. It is crazy to think about how quickly things can change.
Here is what I know now - we don't need all of the things I thought we needed on our schedule. We don't have to attend all the events. This time of slowing down can be a huge gift to us, if only we allow it to teach us what we have needed for quite some time now.
I'm taking things day by day, and I pray you are doing the same and leaning hard into the grace of God to sustain and strengthen you with each step you take.
Here's what is going on currently in this neck of the woods:
Sharing: Right now I am sharing my space with my entire family all the time. I kid, I kid. I am trying to share books with others as we all have lots of time on our hands!
Writing: I am writing a newsletter every couple weeks (let me know if you want to be a part of it!) and have made it a goal to work on my next book more throughout this month.
Wishing: Here's to wishing away COVID -19. I want people to be well and not live in fear.
Investigating: We are spending more time on our back patio, and I am investigating and pinning all the things on Pinterest to make it more cozy and inviting!
Buying: We just got a new area rug for our den area, and we moved the old one outside to the patio because it is technically an indoor/outdoor rug. Now I'm waiting on these fun outdoor lights to arrive, and our back patio will be closer to my "dream" space!
What are you up to these days?
Linking up with Anne today!
