I think that I need to change the concept of simple sunday to
Please, share your ideas for simple living with ME! sunday.
Life is not feeling very simple these days.
Much as I would like it to not be there, there is a weight like a stone of stress on my shoulders.
I have an amazing family. Minou in my life. Two beautiful and brilliant boys.
A home. A garden. Wonderful friends. Work that I value and enjoy.
Even, these days, sunshine.
I'm not sure what the stress is from. It is heavy. Sometimes doing things feels like too much effort.
Much as I love to learn, I feel privileged to study, I am finding it hard to be a student.
Cry me a river. So many people would love to have the opportunity.
I know that I am fortunate. But I am also tired.
I have been a student practically since the day my boys were born.
Throughout their childhood, exams and papers have lurked heavily in the background.
Movies I didn't watch with them. Books I didn't read. Times I felt impatient instead of engaged.
I am still trodding onward. I recognize the value of my study. Almost done with the 4th degree.
But what about the value of those moments with my soon to be out of the house boys?
One of them already wants very little to do with me. Makes me sad.
