Pockets Of Time
There is still a hush in my home this morning. I've already bathed, read the newspaper, realized I missed a great historical re-enactment at a mission in Cataldo yesterday, and am still savoring my last few sips of coffee before my youngest, Nathan, makes his way out of bed. My "real" life, of course, is being his mommy ... even though I feel much too old at times to keep up with him. But my other life, the one that recharges my batteries, is somewhere over the rainbow in little pockets of time. I guess this means daydreams to some ... but some days it's what gets me through the trenches of motherhood. Of course, I have my life that encompasses eternity with our Heavenly Father, but for the nitty-gritty part of life, dreams get me through the day. In my mind's eye, I am envisioning an hour glass with just about five or ten minutes left before reality wakes me. Best be getting along here folks ... wouldn't want to have to borrow against my next dose of dreaming.
