Shit gets busy man. Life is busy, busier, and busiest. (Pause) Life is spectacular. I find myself in the thick of the full bore craziness reminding myself how great we have it. By no means are we financially wealthy. Yet still We don’t need for anything. I have a warm roof for my family, they always have healthy food to eat. Warm showers. Not one, but two super reliable vehicles. My wife is able to stay home with our children. I don’t usually enjoy talking about the ‘things’ we have because frankly things suck. We don’t need things and I’m not a person to boast. I have a healthy self esteem but I don’t like to make other people feel down because I may have more. We’re blessed.
Back to my point. When I’m scrambling to get going in the morning and rush rush rushing it’s hard to SLOW THE &@&! DOWN. When I’m having a ‘bad’ morning because the line was long at the coffee shop. Or traffic is filled with new drivers. I really hate when I have to stop fast and my lunch creates a new interior in my truck. (Happened this morning. Ergo topic on calming the &$&! Down.)
You better be internally smirking because you have the same issues.
Having peace is a huge part of Shayna and My life. In relationship with each other and inviting Jesus in our marriage. it’s a comfort that many miss out on. It gives us the ability to slow down and keep calm and carry on.
I wasn’t able to go to band practice last night. I was bummed. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and playing rock music. (Our name is Twin Grizzly, you now have to listen. We’re on Spotify and Facebook or listen free Here )
Had to skip out on music because Saylor was sick when I got home from work.
Shayna goes to a workout group one night a week and it’s daddy daughter time.
Last night I came home with some delightful Thai food and walked into a battle zone. Saylor is sick on the couch, Evelyn is crying for mommy and my brother and sister-in law with their 6 month old baby were ready to leave.
Okay, thanks, have a great night. Bye.
Loaded Saylor with 3 essential oils. (Peppermint to axe the fever, a blend called breathe to help her slow down and open her airways and a blend called ‘on guard’ on her feet to boost her immune system )Made her drink a glass of water. Had her take some natural cough medicine. she had a teaspoon of raw honey. Out in minutes. Diffused more breathe by her bed for good measure.
Then trying to get a whiny two year old who misses her older sister and mommy to eat. Hahah, she. literally. couldn’t. even.
But all in all life is good. God is good. Saylor woke up feeling way better. No more fever, cough is almost gone. She made sure to make up for not being able to talk about her day last night, at breakfast this morning.
I haven’t done this before so sit back and soak this in.
Slow down. Take a step back. Stay calm and remind yourself how good life is. And if you’re one of those people who can only focus on the negative. Email me, we’ll fix it.
Have a great weekend. God bless you.
