Unexpected Snow Day

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting Slice of Life Tuesdays.  I invite you to check their site to read other Slice of Life stories.

I got an unexpected snow day today.

My husband sent me this text.


Well, I didn't write a book, but I did read one.  (If you don't know about Net Galley, check it out.  You can read books before they've been published.)   

Today was a day to be.  A day to slow down, breathe, and just be.  No rushing.  No racing after perfection.  Today just being was going to be enough.

Today...
I was a friend.
I was a baker. 
I was a reader.
I was a dish washer.  (Oh how good it feels to have a clean kitchen).
I was an afternoon nap taker.
I was a mom.


No great achievements today.  But yet, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.  Because today, everything I did, I did with intention.  

Just being was enough.
