Sometimes, these little things aren’t so easy to see – but they are there, in the background waiting for their turn to come into focus. There are days where the big stuff wins out, but there is a comfort in knowing that as soon as we have the time and the space to breathe and see, that they are there for us.
Today was a day like that – I thought of nothing but getting done what needed to get done. I was frazzled, unfocused when it came to anything else getting in the way. I got it done, leaving the fuzziness in the background knowing that when it was time, I could bring it into focus again. The day came to an end and I was able again to appreciate the giggles at dinnertime. I was able to focus on the details at home. I was able to sit and stare as they snored in their beds. All with nothing upstaging them. Nothing but the little things left to see, to appreciate, to let back in.
