On Sundays I like to force my wild mind into a more reflective mode, which is not always easy to do because, well, it’s wild. But I have a serious talk with it on Saturday night, and it finally agrees to settle down for Sunday and give me a break. I’m no fool, though, I know it's not giving in. I think it just gets exhausted from fretting and focusing on the wrong kinds of things all week that it, too, needs some rest.
So here it is Sunday and being that it’s nice and quiet inside my head, I have a chance to think about all the great things that surround me every day, things I sometimes forget to notice when I’m trying to get the print version of 44 perfect or attaining my daily word count goal (ha!). Things like an amazing family, one great giant lion cat, blue skies, warmer weather, juniper trees, a million shades of green in bloom, baby deer, kayaks on the river, hiking down a dusty trail in the afternoon sun.
I hope wherever you are, you’re having a great Sunday, too.
