Lazy Mornings

So a couple weeks back I wrote about wanting to live more in the moment and less in my planner. I've been really trying to make a cognizant effort to spend more time just "being" and less time hurrying on to the next item on my list, watching my life wiz by me, while I miss out on all the random happenings that make up each of my days. Easier said than done, I know, but the effort has been made {a good start in my eyes}. 

This last weekend was, of course, busy with kids soccer games, Boy Scouts meetings and fundraising, church events, and family get-togethers. It can be hard with three kids to find the time to not focus on the next event and to just be. So on Sunday morning, after we returned home from church, the kids and I put on our comfy clothes, found a sunny spot -much like a cat- and just hung out. We did nothing but talk, throw pumpkins- I have no idea why except for pure two-year-old enjoyment- held hands, made a Lego mess, and just were

It was perfect, uninterrupted, motherhood bliss. A perfect lazy Sunday morning if you ask me. Of course, it didn't last for as long as I would have liked, as we had to move on to the rest of the day's schedule, but it happened and it was enjoyed by all. That part of me that loves making lists and schedules wants to make a time for this at least once a weekend, but then that would be defeating the whole purpose of just finding the time to just be, wouldn't it? 

Anyway, how did you spend your weekend? Or how do you spend your time just being?? 
Have a wonderful last week of October and if you're in the Midwest like me, stay warm!!
