beckonings

retreat 016

Oh what a week it’s been.

We’ve had the beginning of a new preschool for Harper along with a new routine.  Lunch with my coaching buddy, Donna, who was in town from California (that’s us above).  A visit from the bug man to take care of the crickets in our basement–ew!  Newsletter writing, bookkeeping, haircutting, ice cream eating. 

In the middle of it all, I discovered I’m behind in my book club readingThe Joy Diet.  Seems I’ve been neglecting my joy. Interesting, huh?

And instead of rushing through the chapters and posting about it today (which doesn’t seem too joyful), I’m going to practice giving myself some grace.  To slow down.  To savor it.  To allow the joy to seep in with all it’s goodness…in it’s perfect timing.  And so I’m beckoning to joy this weekend. 

p.s.  speaking of beckoning.  I’ve fallen in love with this project, The Beckoning of Lovely.  If you haven’t heard about it, you must must go check out this site and watch each of the videos.  Magical, I tell you! 

Happy weekending!
