If only I could just get up and go. Except right now, I'm enjoying the moment.

I'm typing this blog as I listen the dryer tumbling clothes round and round. A fresh clean load of laundry almost ready to be taken out.

I am listening to my two eldest daughters talking and reading to one another in the far bedroom. Making noises of animals, laughing, chatting and just being together. Spending time.

I hear the whir of the laptop and feel the warmth emanating from it as I type. Looking at my poinsettia plant and other plants that are flourishing in the shelter of this warm house. I see family photos on the walls, trinkets, messes of read newspapers, untidy pillows on the couches and other paraphernalia that needs putting away.

The sun is shining through my windows, bathing me in warmth. I know that spring will come.

I hear children outside playing, cars moving, the crunching of snow under people's boots as they walk by the house.

So much going on in this world. So many things that people are doing and I KNOW I should be doing something more meaningful and profound.

Yet all I do is sigh. Close my eyes and acknowledge, that it doesn't matter how messy my house is. It matters that I'm here, being a Mom, loving my family.

I think I'll get the kids together and take them skating for a bit.

I close my laptop and smile.

    Thats the true meaning of peace. I am glad that you have found it and you sound so content, enjoy it! We live in such a fast pace world that we often forget to look, I mean really see around and count the blessings. Maybe you think you should be doing something meaningful but all the things you already do mean alot. By the way what are limericks? :/ lol

    I know what you mean...I have an orchid flower plant that just makes me smile! It is in front of my kitchen picture window which has such a lovey view all year round. Right now the scene is winter white snow backdrop. This lovey delicate purplish pink flower is such a delight.

I been real depressed for awhile a bit of a roller coaster for over a year. Beginning with the death of my brother...yet I happy to say I love my family too!

Aaahhh the little things that make life worth living.

hugs Anne
