Make Your Mondays - October 14th

Despite Em's plans for a nice relaxing weekend, she as usual went full throttle and barely had time to sit down!  After a whirl wind cleaning party on Friday afternoon followed by dinner out in Laguna Beach for a friend's birthday Saturday had already arrived.  Despite having plans with Nic, she got carried away helping magical Aunt B and her TH and welcomed a little couch time late Saturday evening.  Sunday came and went as TW work days usually do and now onto another week! Nic and her TH managed to get away for a date night (#2 so far since BK's arrival), but spent most of the weekend just relaxing and enjoying family time together. Sunday was BK's first trip to the pumpkin patch where they perused pumpkins, navigated the corn maze, and took lots of photos!

I am not a patient person and have truly been tested in the past two years of my life.  I thought I was going to go crazy waiting around for my then boyfriend, now TH to propose, but that was NOTHING compared to what I am currently experiencing.  This quote was clearly written to me as a reminder, that I need to relax and let life unfold as it was meant to.  I need to not stress over what I cannot control and find peace in the fact I have done all I can do.  I often catch myself wishing time would speed up and give me what I have so desperately been wanting, but then what?  Then I am left with sadness and frustration as I wasted valuable and precious moments of my life not fully living in the moment.  So, now I re-dedicate myself to practicing patience and enjoying each day as it comes.
