The years my children were small.
What do you want more of in your life?
I have everything that I want, except one–and it’s something I have no right to ask for. If you promise never to tell my kids, I’ll tell you in secret at the end of this post.*
Daily Life List: What do you do on an average day? Make a list of your usual activities you do each day.
- The daily sudoku puzzle in the newspaper.
- Work out or do something active, like walk or dance.
- Read a chapter of Scripture.
- Practice piano.
Most days that’s all I can do, plus the usual daily chores. If I can squeeze it in, I’ll do something artistic, like zentangle or drawing or calligraphy.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am really grateful that on Friday I had the opportunity to go to the Arizona Fine Arts Expo (more on that soon). I am looking forward to getting together with my writers’ critique group this Tuesday–circumstances forced us to cancel last week. They are my dearest friends.
*READ NO FURTHER unless you promise never to tell my kids. I would love a grandchild, but I’ve always told my children that parenthood is too big a responsibility to take on before you’re absolutely ready. I said the same thing about marriage, and only one of our five children is married yet. So I have no right to ask or even expect. (And if I never get to be a grandma, I’m okay with it. I have a wonderful life.)
