The WP Daily Prompt today is “fun” but the explanation stated: Imagine that tomorrow, all of your duties and obligations evaporate for the day.
This morning I had just been contemplating divesting myself of some of my obligations and duties, as I was feeling overwhelmed and inadequate and just plain ol’ tired. For a long time. Then I read Alicja’s post today at Postcards Without Stamps and had a change of heart. So, rather than going with what my idea of fun would have been at 6:00 this morning (Sleeping in…catching up on my reading…long walks…a soak in the hot tub…), I have to go with what is actually my plan for this Saturday’s “day off”: getting up early enough to get some studying in and preparing for teaching my early-morning classes for next week…spending time with and feeding our visiting family…making a fruit salad for the funeral of a friend and offering condolences to her family…staying up late (anything after 9 pm is past my bedtime!) and chatting with my visiting daughters and sons-in-law.
As busy and hectic and over scheduled as life seems sometimes, I wouldn’t change it for anything! My life is very blessed and I want to live every moment as it unfolds.
