Of course, I think about it all the time. It comes up in so many conversations with my friends. Laughing wildly at what our clever children have done or said, one of us will inevitably blurt, "This would be a great blog." Sometimes it makes it to the screen. But sometimes I over-think it and it loses its funniness and becomes a lot of mental work to overcome all the opinions in my head. Some of those opinions are my own and others are perceived opinions of others. So instead of causing myself all that trouble, I enjoy the moment for what it is and let someone else over-think it.
This is the same reason I rarely take pictures. When something wonderful is happening, I don't want to be preoccupied with if the camera is working right or if everyone is smiling and looking perfect.It may sound crazy to some of you who just simply put it on your "to- do" list.
For some people the to-do list rules their lives,but I have recently discovered the usefulness of such a tool.
My to-do list for today is:
Cook and clean up breakfast (check)
Clean the bathroom
Vacuum the living room
Put away the laundry (and yes, it is absolutely necessary to put it in writing)
Take a walk
Keep working on my break-out session for my church's women's conference this Saturday
Read something fascinating to my children
Take pictures of them (I don't take near enough of these)
Drink coffee with a dear friend
Praise Jesus all day long! (off to a good start)
