Lazy Days and Lazy Hours
By Tomi Rues
A few weeks ago I found myself a little disappointed that we weren’t having any lazy days. I like that term “lazy days of summer.” With me doing some grant writing, the kids busy with all their activities, yard work, friends, life…. it just didn’t seem there were any empty days on the calendar. Well, as we all know, things change. As children get older they get more involved, and that’s normal and okay, unless we aren’t willing to accept that things change.
So, I was feeling a little sad about what I wanted and wondering if any “free” days would open up, and I realized that maybe I couldn’t have full lazy days, but I most certainly could have lazy hours. This was a small revelation that filled me with immediate relief and a little joy at the same time.
In a way, this little life lesson can apply to many other aspects of my life. Sometimes a little is better than none, and sometimes solutions do come when we open up our minds.
