Some Things Just Really Aren’t That Important…

v 007

Doesn’t it seem like there is so much to do…or is it just the time of year?  Is it a busier than usual or is it the desperation to have everything done, before the first snow? Did I just leave everything ‘til the last minute?  I don’t think so…I think I plan ahead, I make notes, coordinate my time, my activities and my work…at least I think I do….then where does the time go and why does it seem like I left everything ‘til last…. 

                 v 013 

I shouldn’t really feel any pressure about anything….right?

        v 014 

If I do anything I set my mind to (be a sort of Wonder Woman)….all my work would be done…if by magic, I have more important things to do…like ride a horse…up into the wilderness (ever notice the word wild in that?), or face a demon in the eye (sit in front of that ornery computer), take my vintage lady (trailer) for a drive in the country….glampin’ or smile the day I am ‘treated’ not ‘tricked’, (Halloween) to learn that I will be a Grandma…once again!  Only then to realize I just became mush….it’s a simple word really, inert, content, blessed, joyous…all of these things…I am most of all happy!  Bless my kids and their kids!  Thank you, Lord!  One of the things I love the most….being a Grandma….Grandma K, as my dearest little man…calls me.  All the rest…doesn’t matter.

Some days I am just contented….

  9. AMEN! to all of that.

    We do put so much importance on all the 'things' that need to be done, sometimes we forget what is really 'needful'.
