On Fridays, Lisa-Jo, the Gypsy Mama, challenges her readers to write for just five minutes on one word. Today's word is CONNECTED.
I am fighting to feel connected to any one thing at the moment. I'm feeling frazzled trying to wrap up some business items by the end of the year, so I rush through things with the Moose. I've been up during the night with a coughing Moose and have less patience and tenderness for my husband. I'm falling behind in housekeeping because I'm trying to carve out time for myself to write, knit, and read . . .
[As if to punctuate this point perfectly, my cell phone rang while I was writing this with a matter I had to deal with for a client - even though it's my usual "at home" day.]
I feel like some sort of flying creature - not a bird, I don't feel that graceful at the moment - that never actually touches down somewhere. And my wings are so weary from the constant flight.
I could blame it on the season - that doesn't help - but that would be disingenuous of me. I feel like this all the time to some degree.
In the moments that I remember to look heavenward to be grounded, I only have the energy to give thanks for the momentum to keep going and beg for it to continue.
Won't you accept the challenge and join us for just five minutes at the Gypsy Mama today?
