The Juggle

I recall being in a place where I felt like I had too many balls in the air. I was too busy! Life felt like a juggling act. Now things are slower for me. I can take time to smell the roses, listen to the birds, play with my children, read, and of course my newest addition this blog. I am looking for all the things that can be enjoyed without money. I can now take the time to watch the sunrises and sunsets. On the days that have a blue sky and clouds, I can lay with my daughter on the lawn looking up as she names all the things that she sees in the clouds. She can see cats, dogs, fish, dinosaurs, and a hundred other things. She loves to watch the birds. She calls them with hope they will fly to her so she can touch them.

I love to walk my dog, Teddy, and daughter, Jaycee, to the park a few blocks away. Teddy is not quite a year but went from the size of a large cat to the size of a small moose quickly. It is comical to watch a 3 year old and this big Shepard together. They take turns going down the slide. Teddy always goes first. On rainy days we can listen to the sound of the rain. We can inhale the scent of the rain in the air. We can sit and read Dr. Seuss. Sometimes I have to read the same book 10 times because she keeps saying “Again Momma!” I have time to oblige her. We play dress up. She is a ballerina or a princess. She is a Bambi or a rabbit. Teddy is a Bambi too? This is fun! Life is good. It was a long winter and spring is finally here!

I am still trying to figure out how to upload items to the blog. I wanted to upload a video. Instead I will direct you to the address where it can be viewed. This is an amazing juggling act performed to music and is awesome! Click on the link below and enjoy!
