Food for thought this weekend...
What I learned from a Buddhist monk
The word "mono-tasking" will forever stick in my brain. I pray that God help me learn to do this!
It may not be possible all of the time (especially with small children!) but perhaps I will learn to be this way at least some of the time!
And now, I am turning off online distractions for the weekend.
When I mother, I shall mother.
And when I eat, I shall eat.
When I nap, I will nap.
And when I see their little gifts, I shall truly see them.
(with the help of God!)
