In all honesty, I barley know which way is up. My daughter-in-law’s Mom and Sister are staying with us until the 24th. This has been a fun addition to our lives, but change none-the-less. I love having guests in my home. I really do. It is amazing though how out of my order I get when people are here from far places. Alaska and Canada on this go round. I tend NOT to do my own routine when family or guest are in my home. I keep some of my normal plans, just not all of my norm.
Why? That is a great question. I know it doesn’t bother me when other folks stick to their normal life plans when I am around–well–unless they are kinda rude about it and barely bother to speak with you when you come. Those people I just don’t go back to see. I think I am a capture the moment kind of person. I have lost some very special people in my life that made a lasting impact upon my value of the people in my life. I know life can change on a dime, and those you assumed you would have endless time with are no longer there. Today is the only time you actually have, and even that is precarious. I believe in savoring the moments we have with those we care about–While it is today.
This means that my life is a little less ordered, but I have missed some of those moments in the past and lived to regret it. So, please forgive me when I go missing … live flesh and blood people are standing with me and I just can’t miss them, especially when they have come so far.
Many blessings be upon you and those you love during this Christmas season. Much love and wishes for a Fantastic New Year.
I’ll be back a bit later on today to scope you all out.
P.S. and did I mention that I haven’t had a diet coke still?? Well, I haven’t–just thought you might want to know.
Did I also mention that I committed to this strict diet plan before I had a confirmation that they were in fact coming. Yeah! Thats been super fun (sense the sarcasm). I’m still losing and well … I still don’t know how much. 😀
I just got back from the beach and well … I still feel out of sorts there too.
