Two years ago today we were having a total blast at Nick and Jennifer’s house. Dad and Nancy bought the boys paintball guns and Nick and Jennifer let the boys shoot them down in the basement. We had such a great time acting like a bunch of yahoos flinging paintballs at cans, the wall, and sometimes each other. It was awesome. Thinking back to that weekend has brought me many smiles while painting my workshop with Dominic today. That weekend was one that I’ll remember forever and always fills me with joy.
Between getting stuff done around the house, doing some work, and life in general I’ve been kind of stressing much of the day. It’s been that ongoing feeling of too much to do and not enough time to get it done. Thankfully I don’t feel that way too often, but when I do it’s like a weight on my shoulders and chest.
I’m grateful for Becky’s ability to help me breathe today. There’ve been several times when she’s seen the stress level peak and she’s been right there to help me take a deep breath and chill. Sometimes it’s reminding me that I need to chill, other times she asks to learn more about why I’m frustrated, often she smiles and gives me a hug, and she also helps redirect my focus to where it should be so I can get thinks done. Her presence has helped keep me away from the edge and has kept me from changing my upcoming flight to a one way ticket instead. 😉 Thanks for keeping me sane today!!!
