Lately our To-Do list has been feeling a lot like Mary Poppins’ weekender. Just when we feel like the bag has been emptied we’re presented with a slew of new items to tend to, some more urgent than others.
Yesterday The Boss and I drove up toward the mountains and had a chance to spend the whole day together. We were chatting when my love looked out the window and drew my attention to the beauty around us. We’d gotten snow this week and it was set perfectly atop the mountains and limbs of trees. A foggy haze enveloped the sky and frost rested gently on the water’s surface.
We were suddenly so small in the universe, forgetting our chatter and quietly breathing in the magnificence around us. It was a moment that interrupted life and we welcomed it. Scrambled thoughts were put on pause and I felt a sense of inner realignment. Among this beauty was a much needed reminder of a little bit of everything.
