I don't know about you, but when my outer life becomes chaotic my inner life tends to follow suit. I'm ramping up to some pretty big events - I'm the chair for an auction for a local nonprofit (a month away) and I'm also organizing a national conference in Denver set for mid-October. So when my schedule starts to get tight and my time is less and less my own, I have to consciously calm my inner life. I have to be super mindful about how I'm treating myself and my children and my spouse. I ran across this quote from Anne Morrow Lindbergh in my journal this week. I think it bears repeating here.
So, my little bit of Grace this weekend was snuggling with my dog and my Charlie.
It was a good way to translate my inner harmony to outward harmony.
