I was on the way to the grocery store this morning having forgotten a few things during my major grocery shopping expedition yesterday. We have company coming for Sunday dinner this afternoon and those small items missed (even though they were on the list) were crucial. I was stressed, driving along the freeway, not noticing how nice it was to drive without rush hour traffic. Not noticing how the clouds were scudding across the early morning blue sky. Half listening to the radio. Reciting my short list in my head.
And then it hit me. I was stressing over having company…and the company wouldn’t care if there was organic soy milk creamer for the coffee or what type of sweet potatoes I served. Or even if there was whipped cream for the pumpkin pie I made last night. And the radio, full of ads for heartburn and fast food was just annoying.
So I turned off the radio, noticed the rising sun hit the tip of the trees and took a deep breath. It’s Sunday. It’s a day of rest. Enjoy. Sometimes you just have to turn it all off.
I hope you’re enjoying your day too.
