The Gift of Today

I was up really late last night. I was helping an up-and-coming filmmaker with a project. It was a blast, but now I'm rather exhausted. I'm also stressed because I've got some stuff to wrap up over this coming really busy weekend. It's very easy for me to slip into a bad attitude about things; to let it all get to me. And yet, I've been thinking about the weather for the past couple of days because of this post.

Weather? Sleep? What?

I too often label the weather as "good" or "bad." It's often too hot or too cold. Rarely is a day "just right." And other situations only serve to compound the less-than-perfectness of my days. I'm tired. I'm stressed. This and that didn't go perfectly.

Yet it's a good day. Today is a gift. And today there are probably little reminders of just how blessed I am if I'd only take notice.

How's the weather by you? What has your response to today been thus far?

    Well, thanks to your wonderful curriculum, we finished "Out of Many Waters" in Core H today. Oh. My. My response to today is quite different now. I guess it could be summed up in the word, "humbled." Our weather is now "fallish." And I'm happy about it. :)

    Luke, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed and appreciated the video.... it really has changed the way I approach about the everyday. I think I need to listen to it every morning before I get out of bed;-)
    Muchas gracias for the link back too☺

  3. Well, since you already know *that* one, how about this ... the slugs spared ONE squash in my garden. ONE. And I got to make it for dinner.

  4. <smile> Good stuff, Sarah. Glad you're loving learning together... even when it's humbling.

    Thank you for sharing, Diane <smile>. I probably need to watch that video frequently myself.

    MG, glad you got one squash out of the deal. The critters ate much of our garden stuff this year... and the rest didn't grow much. But we did get a few tiny ears of semi-tasty corn, which was super cool <smile>.
