One of Those Days… #caregiving

It’s been one of those days…

It’s after 10:00 p.m. & I’m just sitting down. I’ve been going all day but have nothing to show for it. My new refrigerator is still empty because I haven’t had time to go grocery shopping. My house looks like a tornado has been through it; well, technically it has. Our black lab mix is appropriately named Tornado

Previously on days like these, I would get so frustrated that my whole day had been taken from me. The introvert in me perhaps. Now however, I’m able to sit & gratefully reflect upon the day. Don’t get me wrong, the house, grocery, laundry, etc. is still weighing on me; but I have a fresh perspective.

I know that my time spent caring for my family is far more valuable than anything else. Those little intimate moments can’t be replaced. I’m grateful that I was present for them today.

I have a whole lot of stuff to do tomorrow. I’m sure my day will include some caregiving. I hope I can be as present & compassionate as I was today….  {ICING ON THE CAKE: & catch-up on some housework too!}

How was YOUR day??
