Discovering what love is one day at a time
Yesterday while riding my bike to work, I saw a skunk. It was a baby one and was pretty stinkin’ cute…pun intended. I stopped to take a picture(keeping my distance of course)however, my phone skills are not as awesome as my kids and by the time I got my phone out of my bag and got it ready the little bugger disappeared into the brush. I was told by a friend that baby skunks can’t spray, however, after further investigation I discovered that the truth is that their glands develop within 4 weeks of birth and some as early as 8 days after birth…so if I would of got too close to that lil’ bugger…my week would not have been so pleasant for me nor for anyone else for that matter…
Doesn’t every family have a story of one or two family members that make themselves scarce at big family functions…especially when it is time to do the dishes? Cook? Clean up the mess? Take care of the kids?
Excuses run deep and can be as simple as well, "I am not really good in the kitchen, I really don’t like..,"
In this life there are things that really do matter, and things that do not. Physically speaking, in our everyday life, we can get wrapped up in the things that don’t really matter easily. Things like, should I wear my hair short or long? Should I buy only organic? What if I only ran 3 miles today instead of 6? Quinoa or brown rice? Electric versus gas? Stocks or bonds?...Subaru or Honda? Public or private school?...etc.. Does it really matter?
I woke up a few weeks ago with the song Dead or Alive/BonJovi in my head.
When you were a kid, did you ever make excuses for why you couldn’t participate in gym?
“I can’t I have a headache…, It’s raining, I don’t feel well, I twisted my ankle, and I didn’t bring my tennis shoes…, ” (When you knew full well at home that it was a gym day…)
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. We have two young men ages 19 and 14.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
