Sunbeam Challenge

Yesterday at MJ's place she participated in a Haiku festival and she choose to Haiku sunbeams. I was immediately taken back to my childhood and my obsession with lying in sunbeams. I commented to MJ that I hadn't done this since I was a child. She challenged me to change that.

So after work I headed first to my mom's house to pick up K3. Since this was the scene of where I most often laid in the sunbeams I searched there. Because of the timing there were none to be found in her house. On to last night-I told K2 & K3 of my challenge. We discovered in our living room a perfect patch of sun and sunbeams so we grabbed pillows off the couch and laid down. We spent that time talking about the upcoming Summer and all we want to do. We even attracted the dogs so our patch was quickly taken up.

I realized how little do I take the time to just relax with my children and talk about nothing and everything. We are too busy doing things and spend so little time laying around. I don't have that much more time with them to do it and I vowed to spend more time laying in the sunbeams-with and without them. I even sat on my porch with Buster and did it this morning. Thanks MJ for reminding me to take the time!

You can't hear me but I am cheering for you! Way to go, Amy! What a marvelous thing to introduce to your kids too!

Thank you for reminding me that we are human beings, not human doings!

Great reminder. It's all too easy to get busy and stay that way, and miss all the good stuff. Thanks.

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

I hear ya. I sat out on the porch with my son yesterday, only to be eaten alive by the so-see-ums. Nasty little creatures!

I want more time with my babies too. They are growing up too fast. I hate it.
