Last week in my syndicated column I was writing about the curse of being busy, and how everybody is beginning to answer the question "how are you?" with "I'm just so budy!", rather than with the traditional (and corny), "I'm fine." It's like busyness has become our status symbol.
But there's nothing wrong with having lots to do, as long as we balance it. Working hard is a good thing!
One reader wrote back and said that instead of saying she's busy, she replies, "Life is rich and full." I thought that was beautiful. And that's what our homes should be like: rich and full.
And so this Easter, that's how I'm seeing my life. I have a lot to get done today: shopping and chores and some billing for my husband. But it's all stuff that's good. I love having a home to clean. I love feeding family tomorrow. I love the fact that my husband has a good job that makes money.
And so my life today is rich and full! I hope yours is, too.
