Getting By

As we were driving back home after a good day at work my husband says to me “we made it through Tuesday just 3 more days for the weekend”.  This statement had my wheels turning.  You know the question we have so often like ‘Wow!  Were in April already’ or ‘I cannot believe a whole year has passed’?

It is true we made it through Tuesday workday and we look forward to Friday after work as that means we will have two full days together at home.  However when we rush our days with trying to get by to end of the week we find ourselves not enjoying every day.    My family and I are routine oriented with a schedule we pretty much live by since we first had Alex.  In having a schedule we can whiz by our days and not really take in the moments that are before us.  I believe and stand by having routine/schedules as you can really accomplish more and even have more time to be spontaneous.  

So really in saying all that I am saying to us, let’s enjoy the day we are in.  When we embrace the day as a whole and not just a means to get to the next weekend or party we bring fulfillment into our life and when a year pass by or comment can be ‘A year has passed by and it was the best’!

Psalm 118:24
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
