The busyness of life comes in waves. Sometimes life is slow and easy. You have evenings free, you can take a nap during the day if you like, you have time to bake cookies. Other times life is like a merry-go-round, spinning faster and faster until you are hanging on for dear life.
Last week was one of those weeks. It was a week with the birth of a church member’s baby girl on Wednesday, the funeral for one of our wonderful members from church on Thursday, the memorial service for a young man who tragically died on Friday, and the wedding of a some church members on Saturday (3 hours away). It is strange how one can experience the highs and lows of life’s big events all in one week.
I’m emotionally drained. (and still battling the cold…or allergies…that I’ve been dealing with for the past week.)
But I have this week off from work, due to our school district wanting to save some money. I’ve resting, writing, movie watching, reading, and doing a little crafting.
I think I’ll try to harness some of the emotions of the past week and see if it will infuse my writing with some depth. Maybe not, but I’m going to give it a shot.
So what is on your agenda for the week? Any holiday plans for today, July the 4th?
