word of the day: simple
In striking contrast to our colorful weekend, we're quite subdued around here today. Directly after I wrote my last post, my daughter developed a high fever (my kids get scorchers). We've been in the thick of it for about 36 hours. I'm just focusing on keeping everything easy. Simple meals, simple activities (for the couch-bound), and simple expectations of what can actually get done. I fought this a bit yesterday, in my sleep-deprived stupor... thinking I could hold onto my quickly dissolving plans for the new week. Not today. I am happily greeting the morning with the goal of simplicity... and looking forward to the countless books I will surely read aloud snuggled under blankets. What is your word for the day?
