I have been busy! Hell, my days are always busy but lately, I have actually had to do some real work (if that’s what they call working from home) and get the house ready for the holidays. So, a busy life has been so busy that I have had no time to blog about all of the things that keep me so busy!
Ahh, but now the house is quiet and I have finished my work for the day. Turns out my brain is tired. Imagine that! So, missing my blog, I turned to the daily prompt to get my head in the game again. FLUFF! Where does that even fit into a blog about life? I mean, one blogger posted a beautiful picture of fluffy ducks by the water. I could dive into the discussion about how many times I have found my peace sitting by the water and feeling as free as this flock. Another posted the fluff of a dandelion and provided a poem about life’s changes. I cannot count the number of times I have watched my grandchildren laugh as they blew those white “fairies” across the yard! Beautiful approaches such as these filled the page.
One, in particular, really triggered what I have been feeling. The author simply said to enjoy the fluff. What a concept!
When thinking about how I have been TOO busy, I realized that the things keeping me so busy are MY LIFE! These moments that we rush through, the fluff of life, are the whole of life. There is a beginning and an end (the seams of life) but the middle, the fluff, that’s what counts.
I’d rather be fluffing!
