Weird Waves of Life

The busyness of life comes in waves. Sometimes life is slow and easy. You have evenings free, you can take a nap during the day if you like, you have time to bake cookies. Other times life is like a merry-go-round, spinning faster and faster until you are hanging on for dear life.

Last week was one of those weeks. It was a week with the birth of a church member’s baby girl on Wednesday, the funeral for one of our wonderful members from church on Thursday, the memorial service for a young man who tragically died on Friday, and the wedding of a some church members on Saturday (3 hours away). It is strange how one can experience the highs and lows of life’s big events all in one week.

I’m emotionally drained. (and still battling the cold…or allergies…that I’ve been dealing with for the past week.)

But I have this week off from work, due to our school district wanting to save some money. I’ve resting, writing, movie watching, reading, and doing a little crafting.

I think I’ll try to harness some of the emotions of the past week and see if it will infuse my writing with some depth. Maybe not, but I’m going to give it a shot.

So what is on your agenda for the week? Any holiday plans for today, July the 4th?

  1. This is so true, Sherrinda. I'd be drained too. This is a busy week for me also, busier than I like but next week should be better. Hope you get some rest!


  2. Sounds like a good way to catch your breath. Enjoy!


  3. Happy 4th of July, Sherrinda! I hope you enjoy your week long vacation – I can only imagine all the wonderful crafty projects you'll get done. 🙂 Today we're heading back to my in-law's lake home to enjoy some relief from the crazy heat we're experiencing. I believe my parents will also be joining us, so my kiddos will get to spend the day with both sets of grandparents. I hope you have a great day, too!


  4. I'm a couple days late commenting, but I'm glad you've had a chance to unwind this week. HOpefully it was relaxing and recharging. 🙂
