I just looked down at my lap and realized I would have to answer that question with a resounding "Yes!".
Years ago when I was a mom, a wife, and "a working girl", it was not even debatable. My mind was almost always full of tasks....those underway, those just completed, and those coming soon. Raising a family, running a household, working a job all required constant multi - tasking. Good times...but not much free time. Balance was always sought, but not always found.
But now...Aaaah...the gift of time...I can "pretty much" do whatever I want to do whenever I want to do it. There is no rush anymore.
And yet, on this leisurely morning, I look down at my lap. It is full of things I love...All going on together. At the same time. Writing in my sacred journal about the Spirit of God in me and fully desiring it to run my life, giving in to the irresistible urge to fill in the blanks in today's AJC crossword puzzle, all while perusing the beauty section of my Real Simple magazine (my favorite) one more time before I toss it away. Makes me tired to say it that way!
So instead I will celebrate the "me" that likes to do things this way sometimes. A lap full of favorites, a cup of coffee, while still in my pjs. Yes...I am still a multi-tasker sometimes. And yet it feels like I have struck the perfect balance. And you?
