Even though school ended over a month ago, I feel like I have not yet had any summer vacation. Since my daughter is now homeschooled, I have been trying to keep her working so we (she, actually) can get a few things wrapped up for the year. There are a few chapters left to finish and a few projects I’d like to help her complete. I think I get more excited about projects than she does! She needs to keep working.
At any rate, I’ve been technically working only on the weekends, but I feel like I have not really rested yet. I think it’s because I spend so much time thinking about things I should do or things I want to do in the near future. I would be willing to bet that I’m no busier than everyone else around me, but it sure feels that way. Maybe I’m bogged down thinking and worrying about things I have no control over like all the sickness in our small community.
As I reflect on the “stuff in my head,” I have to remind myself that I should be thankful for the many blessings I have. I’m reasonably healthy and able to work. My career is heading in the right direction. My family is doing well. Maybe those blessings will be enough to help me relax a bit before I have to start classes again.
