Happy Easter! Grab some Cadbury cream eggs and pull up a chair as I walk you through a few weekend truths.
Weekend truths are a semi vague way of letting you into our little life together. Truth can be funny, Truth can be hard, Truth can be joyous, Truth IS PURPOSEFUL!
So here goes.
Truth is… we are stocked! Special delivery from Udis Gluten Free and from Bestowed Box. Truth is I am BEYOND THANKFUL! Being an Udis Gluten Free Community Leader has it’s perks, yes, but TRUTHFULLY it’s the people I engage with everyday that make it amazing and worth making the time for!
I’ll be sharing more information on these goodies soon!
Truth is… the husband arrived home Friday after being gone for 3 weeks. He had been in Hawaii working a few training camps and racing. Truth is there was a little surprise from Quintanaroo when he walked in the door. FYI, QR is his bike sponsor.
Truth is… I took a week off working and working out. Yes, I needed it. When I left for Hawaii (to go Sherpa the race), I left all my work here. My classes were covered and Healthy Bites were put on hold. I squeezed in one run while in Hawaii but then opted to just walk half way through it. Coming back to reality was HARD—>TRUTH —> but I felt so refreshed and that time away was MORE than NEEDED.
Truth is … we went to Easter service last night so that we could have a more quiet Sunday morning. I got all fancy and put on my Easter pearls. Truth is I haven’t worn a skirt or pearls in probably over a year. ha! Our afternoon on Easter will be more relaxed. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs at my parents wit the whole family. Flip Flops and shorts attire.
Truth is … we can quickly lose focus on what’s important. Guilty! My husband has been back for less than 48 hours we already let the stresses of life build up on us. Post Easter service arguments are always the best way to celebrate, yes? Ugh, wrong! But the truth is …. WE NEEDED IT! We needed to communicate things in order to change things. Oh it’s so easy to get back to the grind of life and forget that we are made to carry each other burdens, not add to them. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the TO-DO’s of life and forget that sometimes it’s better to… TO-DON’T! Don’t worry about a plan, don’t worry that you (we) are still unsure of our future, don’t worry about a clean house, or trying to catch up on work. I’m talking about myself here as you can see. Instead, we’re trying to rest in God’s truth, His Plan, His Purpose. Easier said than done at times, but worth every bit of effort.
So cheers to not being perfect! No perfect plan. No perfect marriage. No perfect way of life.
Cheers to embracing simplicity and accepting the day for what it is…..in God’s hands.
Now… go grab some Marshmallow Peeps and enjoy the day!
