How is it that there is never enough time in a day, week, month...pandemic? I realize right now there seems to be more than enough time to go around for some, however, I've still been going to work so I've not had nearly the time at home as I would like. I've been planning this 4 day weekend in my head for a full month. I had all these grandiose ideas of getting projects done and chores caught up and fit in some fishing with the family. Yet now, nearly 3 full days gone and my list is still a mile long. I do feel relatively accomplished by getting several items checked off of my list but I still managed to set myself up for failure by overbooking my time.

    Why oh why do we do this to ourselves? I say 'we' because I'm certain I'm not alone in this! We, as humans, tend to over extend ourselves and plan our lives away. As much as we miss sports and outings and gatherings, it has been a nice change of pace to stay home with the family in the evenings, to catch up and get to know each other again, it's taking me expedientially longer than it should to realize this, but I'm getting there. I pray that each of you are doing the same; put down the list and cherish the moments we have, while we have them. I'm sure we are all guilty of wishing for things to get back to normal but when they do I'm sure we will long for these times of slowness, so cherish it while you've got it, I know I'm going to start trying harder.

"Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom." Psalms 90:12
