Grab Your Peace As It Comes

Peace and serenity are not always within my reach given some of the crazy stuff going on in my life lately... Having 2 out of 3 children and an elderly father all with special needs requiring particular attention just now can cause that sometimes! But, today we had a snow day.

There was no going out to play or to do anything else in the untamed weather. So it was a calm and quiet day indoors. I could have loaded up my day and the kids' day with planned activities and structure but I didn't. I took my lead from the weather and had an untamed day.

We played a little, worked a little, watched some movies and then played some more. We ate when we got hungry (not on a schedule) and did whatever we wanted all day long.

Sometimes we did stuff together, sometimes individually.

I grabbed my peace as it came and had a wonderful and relaxing day. It was a gift I accepted from nature!
