This was our moment of rest.
This past month we've been busy getting summer under way: the vacation that wasn't quite what we'd planned, the beginning of a beautiful summer mom's park group, getting J fitted to his volunteer job, the start of B's baseball, camping with extended family. Juggling, swaying, finding a balance. The children didn't understand how necessary today's rest really was, but looking ahead I know that summer will have its tumults to come and today, if only for a few hours, was the day for stillness.
I know that Summer's Third Act will come blowing in with a lesser grace and greater urgency. The endings will come one after another. And we'll launch into the unknowable future of leading and learning. For now, I am exactly where I want to be.
