1, 2, 3…REFLECT

The end of the day. What do you do? It’s an easy list to jot down.

  • Check Facebook for the billionth time
  • Peek on the baby. Gush over the baby’s cheeks
  • Look at the calendar for tomorrow
  • Turn on the dishwasher
  • Remove contacts. Ask why I didn’t order new ones. Again. Not write it down. Promptly forget I have none left. 
  • Climb in bed
  • Check FB for the billion and oneth time

Tonight I climbed under my super soft black and red checkered Christmas blankie and asked myself a question. 

What was the most important thing that happened today? 

I was struck by the fact that I hadn’t once reflected on that. I realized while I’d skimmed my friends’ updates and I’d jumped in the pool with the kids, and even had run 5.5 miles, I hadn’t stopped to pray or have that moment of quiet reflection and stillness. 

So I’m doing that tonight.

It’s never too late in the day to be still.
