This weekend has been lovely. Yesterday was spent snuggling animals, sporadic cleaning that amounted in a tangible difference, Gilmore Girls marathon, The Crown on Netflix, OU football and yet another underwhelming experience with Order Up Norman. (NEVER AGAIN AND I MEAN IT THIS TIME)
Throughout all of that peace, it also had that overriding energy that burbles up when travel is imminent.
The check list of things needed, things to accomplish, places to be.
Packing is almost finished for me. Mark will being about 3am tomorrow. Because that’s how he rolls.
I’ll deliver Winnie to Cori and Jess for a week of what we all only hope is fun and laughter and zero mishaps.
Tonight we get to hear Slaid Cleaves in The Depot once again. That man can make a song, sing a song, take you to church with a song.
Traditionally the last show right before Thanksgiving is the one filled with so much magic it is palpable. I can’t wait.
I’ve got us checked in for our super early flight. We get to be with family for a week that includes Harry Potter World, some amazing sight seeing,and ends with Thanksgiving. That makes my heart soar.
There is, amid all the bullshit, a newfound sense of peace in my heart.
For that I am so very thankful.
Be blessed this week, be kind and speak to each other with words of love. For many it will not be easy to sit across from family, this time has been so full of toxic energy it will be an effort. For others it will be a mixture of duty and dread and carbs.
Whatever your scenario, I send you thoughts of love and light.
Rise UP together.
