Resting by shopping?

It’s Sabbath Sunday and I am having a slow morning (thankfully).  While I don’t especially like shopping I know it needs to get done once in a while.  My daughter, Tara, is the same way.  If the fairy with the magic wand could magically make things appear she would do it.  But instead we will be doing a bit of running to find some new jeans for her.

While it is not too restful for me to shop I am choosing to look at the silver lining.  I get to spend time with her and probably have a yummy lunch too.  I know it won’t take long since it is not our favorite thing, but it is time together.  I don’t see her much with rehearsals, school, and friends.  Now that she is driving it is even less.

I don’t say this for pity, but instead to remind you (and myself) that it’s our perspective on things.  Instead of saying I “have to” I am now saying I “get to”.  It’s amazing how your attitude changes.

Is there something you need to shift your perspective on?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
