There is always a day in spring, when the ground begins to thaw and the sunlight lingers in the valley, that I realize I have been asleep. I look around at what I’m doing and how I’m doing it and feel discouraged. Our lessons have become a little stale, too bare-bones. My internal rhythms feel skewed and I still haven’t added in a regular exercise time (or shower time for that matter!) The kids and I have let courtesy drop and we are snip, snap, short with each other. I feel like the ideal me is so far away from the real me.
Someone on a facebook group I belong to linked to this beautiful video of my mother’s favorite song Sheep May Safely Graze by J.S. Bach. It made me feel so at peace, I wanted to share it with you.
