Did you ever have some errands that you were dreading? Perhaps you didn't feel well, but those tasks could not wait?
I have had the nicest time, staying home all this week. Today, I have to go out. But all I want to do is stay home! (gentle smiles)
So I will have to take "home" with me. I will bring a special book, for while I am in waiting rooms. I will bring one of my sweet children with me. (I wouldn't bring one of the grumpy ones! - smiles).
I will buy something easy for tonight's dinner, so I won't have to dread any extra work.
I will listen to Fred Astaire this morning, while tidying my house, with a cheerful (in the clouds) outlook. Maybe by the time I have to head out the door, I will be so happy, I will forget that I don't want to go?
There will have to be some kind of reward... hmmm.... I need to think of something lovely for when I get home - as a reward for doing all the dreaded errands that have me so stressed out today....
Perhaps I will look forward to tea, a cozy fire, and reading a sweet new book that I am enjoying.
Or maybe the idea of just having the entire weekend with no demands will be my reward.
A written record of who was present - Recording the Family Bible Study.
I dearly miss these days - Rocking Babies and Staying Home.
It's not what everyone else does for me, it's what I do to make it special - A Mother's Touch.
