small things #61 ... less
Yesterday was a zip! bang! zoom! sort of day. The first day of school hype, the hustle of grocery shopping, the bump and thump of laundry, the bustle of gymnastics and the screech of the brakes as we came in for a landing in the evening.
The kids were tired out. I was worn out. And the day was strung out. A typical Monday, I suppose.
Today, however, we have less.
Less to do.
Less. Less. Less.
And it's lovely.
This fall promises to have less of a lot of things. Less responsibilities outside of the home. Less days broken up with fragmented schedules. Less trips to Kidzplex for gymnastics. Less one kid to care for. Less of my energies used up which means more of me to give to my family.
Less ... saying no to more doing and saying yes to more being.
