As I lay in bed early this morning, I realized it was Saturday. Given the current circumstances of the world with COVID-19, I knew we had no where to rush off to this morning. Unhappy about being up so early, I attempted to fall back asleep, to no avail.
I eventually dragged myself out of bed and headed downstairs, with intentions of getting some of my work completed before the girls work up. I filled up my water bottle, and instead of heading to my office to work, I turned left and headed into the dining room to work on my puzzle.
I cannot remember the last time I spent a morning taking time to myself like I did this morning. Working on this puzzle that I have been attempting to complete for literally months, was calming amidst the craziness in our lives right now. I enjoyed the sunshine coming through the windows as I worked. Piece by piece, the puzzle was coming together. I could see the end in sight.
I am happy to say the puzzle is complete! The girls knew how much I wanted to finish it this weekend and gladly gave me the time to work while they played. I think we all enjoyed taking some time to do the things we enjoy.
With the craziness of the world right now, I am grateful to be able to find some joy in self care. Taking time for me today was much needed.
