Do

I am constantly dreaming of new things is want to DO


My current list looks something like this:



  • create homemade books from homemade paper
  • paint more stuff with chalkboard paint
  • sew a skirt from fabric I purchased in Mexico
  • create headbands with my new hospital-wall-photo-inspiration-idea
  • write write write
. . . the list goes on and on.




Somehow between leaving the house at 5:30 in the morning, driving bus trips all day, keeping my chin above the heap of laundry and attempting dinners resembling something other than pizza, I feel like time keeps slipping away.  

Then I remind myself that life is more than that.  
It is more than apple scented dish soap that seems to be in constant use.  
It is more than rumpled, unmade bed or the pile of papers on our mint green table.


It is memories.
It is adventures.
It is loving.
It is seeking Truth.
It is chasing dreams that my Creator has placed on my heart.

Today I was blessed to come home between routes.
Today I chose to chase a dream.

A dream of paints and little brushes and one bright white canvas.
Because you never really know what you may discover you love until you try.


Happy beautiful long weekend, lovelies!
