Hello Spring Break, my long-awaited friend. Lovely to see you.
Your presence makes me feel better that not one person participated in the meme linky I posted on my blog yesterday (#humblingexperiences). I am also thankful to have the opportunity to actually fold the laundry that's been laying on my couch for the last week. So, yeah. Thanks.
I keep trying to imagine how my time with you will be best spent. Most people would probably run to Florida at the first opportunity. But something in me says I should use you to look around the dustier areas of my life, and appreciate the fact that I have time to reevaluate some of the habits I've thrown on a shelf for the last few weeks. Like prayer. Like Bible study. Like personal journaling.
But I fully intend to enjoy our weekend trip toward the end of my time with you. Spring break isn't spring break without at least a tiny bit of time out of town. Favorite is really looking forward to that time, so thanks for not disappointing him.
I probably won't think much about work while we hang, Spring Break. I'll revisit those things right before I know you're leaving, but I think we all need some time to relax and appreciate everything around us. Of course, I'll have that opportunity just a few weeks after you leave, because Summer Break plans to visit mid-May. But that doesn't mean I shouldn't appreciate you while you're here.
So that's what I'm going to do--appreciate. I just thought I'd let you know where I stood.
Thanks for the visit.
