Last week was an absolute whirlwind. Sunday night at Crazy Water, Tuesday at Bartolotta's and the Pfister, Friday at MATC, oh, and working 3 extra days in there as well...
I love the crazy if there is a respite afterwards, just like I love the calm if there is some crazy on the horizon.
To be able to be in balance is essential for me. I know everyone says that, but for me, it's true. I have friends that thrive on crazy, the fuller the calendar, the better. Not me.
I feel so lucky that our family gets to change it up. I am thankful that I love my children's company so much that when I am not with them, I really miss them. I also believe in, "How can I miss you if you don't go away?"
It's in those spaces between the spaces, that time left to one's thoughts, that we get to discover who we are. I want to give my kiddos that space. I want to have that space.
I don't want my children to ever know the phrase "I'm bored.", because if you are living and breathing, there is always something to discover.
