What Really Matters – Day 108

This is a snapshot of my day: Image

It is Good Friday.  Originally we were scheduled to have today off from school, but with the crazy winter weather we’ve had this year, today became a student day.  However, daycare was closed.  Therefore, I took the day off and stayed at home with my youngest, D.  Today’s first:  taking a day off from work to focus solely on being a mom and take care of D.  I’m not sure what was the most awesome part of it all — going back to bed after the husband and oldest son went to work, snuggling in bed while watching morning cartoons, having a stress-free day,….the list could go on and on.  

My days — like most professional moms — is filled with rushing, stress, and checklists.  I certainly don’t mean to sound like I am complaining.  I am beyond blessed to have such a full life with multiple opportunities, but sometimes it’s all too much.  Some days I want to put life on hold and just relax for the day enjoying what really matters.  Today I did that.  

Another first I experienced…while D was taking his nap, I watched an episode of Cosmos hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson on Fox.  It was the premier episode.  It was fantastic…a step beyond a simple documentary.  The graphics, animation, writing….it was all so beautifully done.  In fact, I enjoyed it so much I’m watching another episode now while typing this.  

I am a full believer that theology and science coexist and even support each other rather than compete.  Thus far this episode only supports my thoughts in this.
