Surrender to the Fact


My oldest son snapped a picture of my youngest and I, sitting on a bench together one day. It made me think about alot of things when I saw this...one of them being that I wish there were more pictures of me sitting on benches with the people I love...taking time out to be with those I take for granted. Making memories in my heart that I could look back on and feel that life was made up of more than just a schedule, lists to do, and running.
So.....I found a tip in my book of quotes and sayings that I try to write in on occassion....and this one seemed to fit:)
SURRENDER TO THE FACT THAT THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING MORE TO DO
Half the time I'm just upset becasue there IS more to do. I think today I'm going to take a little more time to sit on benches with the ones important to me...and realize that there will be more to do...always will be things to do...but- later.

What a great pic...you are so right, there is always more to do...when to stop? I can spend so much time sweeping my floor 20 times a day (shedding dog) when I can probably get away with less and not really make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things...I need to sit on more benches...

That is the best goal ever, in my humble opinion. I love it! xo
