Magic Eye

Sometimes I am startled by how crazy I am about my kids.  I worry that I am squandering this time with them, wishing for time to myself. I wish I knew how to find that balance between time to be and restore myself and time to devote myself wholeheartedly to them. I find that because there is so little time for me, I feel as if I am always pushing them away. The end result is I never really get a break and they get a very worn out Mama a lot of the time. But I am starting to think that what is really wearing me out is constantly resisting my life as it is. When I stop trying to get away, I see my life as a different place. It reminds me of Spiderwick or Arthur and the Invisibles. All these wonders just waiting for me to see them .

It is the magic eye when we can stop long enough to see the magic all around! Even the bad moments have their magic. it wouldn't be life with out it all. If only we could get the magic eye to do a bit of the laundry or change a diaper once in a while! XO
