Weekend Bliss

The weekend comes to an end and I am left with a feeling of such peace.  It will be a busy week as I am swooshed up into the events of teaching, all of the rituals surrounding assessment and mark entry and accountability.  However, I enter into it, with the sense that there is a remarkable balance in my life.
 
The time I shared with my children this weekend was of the sort of quiet conversation and connection.  Sometimes a parent supposes that it’s essential to DO SOMETHING….attend a movie or go out to a restaurant for ‘eats’ with her children.  In contrast, this was a flopping-on-the-bed-and-talking-sort-of weekend…laughter while observing the pets…sharing food-inventions.  It was nice.
 
These events were mixed in with an 89th birthday meal in the country, a ya-ya gathering and a lunch shared with teaching girlfriends.  There was a special chess game and lots of candle light….time painting/chatting in the Chapel….and watching slideshows at kitchen tables.  It was a full rich time and I leave it feeling rested and grateful!
