And we are letting go of the List.
There are a lot of unchecked boxes...and I may attempt to tackle a few more items. But in reality, the curtains don't need to be hung in every room before Baby's arrival. The closet under the stairs isn't required by law to be efficiently organized. The trim around the fireplace doesn't have to painted. And our family will survive, even if I don't get that strawberry bread made for the freezer.
There is a greater list that now governs us, and it has only one box to check; only one priority...squeezing the day.
To slow down and notice the littles in our home that are growing so fast. It wasn't too long ago we were preparing our home for their arrival...
And to let the things I might have missed otherwise continue to amuse and surprise.
To juice this time, these fleeting days, for every last drop of our now.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
