Slow at Home
We have been staying home. A.lot. And, I am loving it so much. It has me thinking more and harder about how to make this happen more and more.
I think I stay home a lot as it is even without this, but the past proves itself true time and time again that the more we stay home, the smoother our days go. Time literally seems to go slower, it seems like there is more time to go around. Time rapidly disappears when we are not at home.
I'm loving the focus on caring for my family and home by just being in it, enjoying the pure and simple tasks of fixing dinner and cleaning around the shower faucet - things I don't always feel like I have the luxury of time to complete. Well, of course we eat dinner - but you know what I mean right?!
My children have been wild with energy this past week and spending a lot of time playing outside so don't get the impression that it is all calm and peaceful when we spend these days at home. I guess what I want to remember is how good and true and right it feels. How at rest my heart is to be at home. And, I am so very grateful for my dear husband who goes out into the world every day so we can enjoy this precious gift.
Those two words are embedded deep in my heart right now. I am pondering more on this - but for now, just those two words are enough.
I've linked this post before but it is appropriate and encouraging enough to share again: Let's Stay Home
How does staying home help you? Or do you find your experience to be different?
