Good morning…..

Another glorious day, wouldn’t you agree? I was once asked (OK maybe more than once.) if I ever think a day is not glorious or wonderful or bright or beautiful….sure I do. I just can’t remember when. It is difficult to see darkness when you live in a rainbow!

I’ve been talking with people who feel overwhelmed and one of them could have been you. Overwhelmed, a feeling many of us have these days.

We have many good intentions of doing what is asked of us. We want to give, to share in our activities, to run our children all over the place and to be all to our families.

Is this too much? Does this make us feel overwhelmed? You bet it does. We talk of slowing down don’t we? We say no more, I’m not going to volunteer for another thing. Then what do you do? You volunteer because it will not take up too much time.

This weekend we had hoped for a “nice stay around the house” kind of Holiday…maybe get some needed rest and maybe even work in the yard…(I say on my tan.)

Then we find ourselves out of town all day Saturday at a Soccer tournament, scrambling to clean the house for a party on Sunday and maybe a “quick” trip to Jersey on Monday.

I ask…..”ARE YOU KIDDING ME????” The answer was no so I will make the best of it and look at my rainbow.

Overwhelmed….let’s try not to be. Let’s enjoy some time together with our family or even family and friends. Don’t worry about those dust bunnies in the corner…they run when they see people anyway.

If you have sporting events to attend…pack some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips, drinks, chocolate chip cookies and make a picnic. Many times it is not where we are but who we are with.

Enjoy your Holiday weekend and relax…we can get back to the schedules next week. Now that will be different. Nancy
