Sometimes God has to block your path with something to get your attention. And sometimes all it takes is a gentle nudge. I got a thump in the ear yesterday on my way home from work – courtesy of Alabama.
I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why
I have been back at work for four weeks now, and we have settled into a pretty nice little routine at home. I get up by 5 to get to work by 8(ish) – and by the time I pick up Colt from daycare I get home by 5:30 and start getting things ready for him to go back to daycare (i.e. washing bottles, etc.). He's been going to bed about 8:30 so there are only a few hours at night when we get to play together. And those hours are my favorite of the whole day.
So yesterday in the car – I really needed that song. I really needed to hear that it's ok to leave work at 5:00 with things unfinished and waiting for me the next morning. It's ok to look forward to Saturdays and Sundays – and waffles and napping and playing with Colt's feet and watching Jeff watch football and lounging in my jammies with my two favorite boys. And every night between 6 and 8 pm – I get a sneak preview of how I get to spend the weekend. And I love it.
