I cherish Saturdays. Workweeks are long and stressful and not full of enough sleep. Sundays bring anxiety about Monday morning. But Saturdays are glorious.
Case in point, last Saturday I left the Holiday cards unsigned, the presents unwrapped and the house uncleaned to go outside and play with my boys. We have a hilly yard – which most of the time stinks but for sledding it is excellent (especially when you are 2 and 5).
We spent a good half of the day outside playing in the snow (before Sunday’s rainstorm turned it all to ice) and for a moment I stopped at the top of the hill, my two-year-old on my lap, looked out at the ocean and thought “wow, life is awesome.”
Moments like this can be few and far between but are just the fuel I need to keep going. I hope you have one soon, too. Remember what matters during this very busy and stressful month!
