I came home from my tennis match tonight and caught this glimpse from the outside looking in and I stopped and paused with a joyful heart.
I made a pot of chili in my new Le Creuset dutch oven, before my game so that it was ready for everyone when they got hungry. I love to cook and I love to make food for my family and friends. This feels like love to me.
When I came home, I felt joy peeking in and seeing my family in the kitchen, getting themselves some dinner and just being there together. It was one of those moments, that you just sit and stare in wonder over something so simple and normal.
I felt a sense of self and family.
I had time to play with my friends and to serve my family too, and I was excited to see them again. They actually came to surprise me at the end of my match and I was grateful that they chose to come out to support me. They are so cool and that made me feel loved. They came after Charlie’s winning basketball game was over. I was lucky and thankful that Jeff was home to support Charlie and to get him to and from his game so that I had the freedom to play my match without worry. Thank you, Jeff. You are a great husband and father. Thanks for saying hello and taking the kids back home while I finished up with my team.
I love to have a little time for myself and feel energized and happy to come back again to see my family after I’ve had time to exercise or do whatever.
I loved this little glimpse of seeing my family from a distance and appreciating all that they are, just simply being.
Life is good. I hope you had a restful Sunday and had time to play, time to pray or meditate or hope and dream, and time to be with family and friends.
Have a great week, BeLoveRs. xo
