I know you know what busyness and all its side effects feels like.
You were there front row and center when you were young and our lives were hectic and urgent.
And yes, there was great love and laughter and fun.
Remember when you actually changed from your volleyball uniform into your lamb showing clothes for the livestock show-
in the back seat of the Suburban- while I was driving down the expressway?
I don’t even know what to say about that.
It was MY idea.
In spite of this sense you may have to do it all, today, I want to challenge you to listen to the yearning.
It is in you.
It has always been in me.
It is that still small voice that says ‘I just want to go home’.
‘I can’t put one more foot in front of the other’.
’I can’t finish this to do list’.
’I can go to the grocery store tomorrow.”
‘My feet are killing me.’
That yearning you feel is your heritage speaking.
We really are homebodies.
Listen to it.
You’ll know what to do.
