More On Distractions…

fairiesI got distracted by these plump little fairy godmothers.  Jenny set them up for Rita, and I fell in love with their sweetness.

If I hadn’t managed to get a bunch of stuff crossed off the list, I’d have walked by these little sweeties, without a second glance.   Because I got some things done, my brain was clear, and open to seeing new things.  I’m always telling the kids that they will more enjoy a good time, if they get the chores out of the way, first.  (Plus, if they get the jobs done, they won’t have to listen to me harping at them.)

And then I was thinking about getting ‘chores’ done on a larger scale.  If we attempt to really deal with the big uncomfortable stuff, the good stuff won’t be over-shadowed.  We can continue to go through life, avoiding the major problems, and missing the magical little details; or we can try to deal with those issues, and free ourselves up for more of life’s sweetness.  It’s one thing to be bothered by a clogged sink drain, it’s another to be weighed down by the major problems in a relationship.  Can we afford to ignore those problems?  How much sweetness are we missing out on, when we walk around carrying the weight of a failed relationship?
