it's a hat day.
a much needed hat day.
it's a i don't have to shower, blow-dry, straighten, make-up, or coordinate skinny jeans (uh huh, i got some) with a top and sweater day.
today it's a yoga pants (minus the downward dog), team building exercise t-shirt (that i received from someone else who actually exercises), zip up hoodie, and a hat day!
it's been 12 days since my last hat day.
i usually have 2-3 hat days a week.
2-3 days a week where i am not required to be anywhere other than the dining room table (for homeschool), or at the bus stop to pick up the boy.
2-3 days to sip my coffee instead of inhale it, to read Little Women to my girls (oh how i wish i could move in with the March family), to linger, to organize my thoughts (there are a lot of them), to breath Him in, to clean, to play Stella, and to blog.
because i have gone so long without a hat day i have 15 blog posts swirling around in my hat loving mind.
posts about clothespins, sweet bread, great-grandmothers, ecuador, stretchy belts, and about a silly little girl who wore a wrist brace and sling for 3 days to be funny. posts about how rich we are- though our bank account would indicate otherwise. posts about saying goodbye to a "family member" and welcoming a new one. posts about squeezing in moments with besties, and being refreshed by friendship. posts about learning grace, counting on God, thanking him for pain, and about choosing glory.
but before i post any of that i must wear a hat.
now, if only i could decide which hat to wear...
days that invite you to breath in each moment instead of requiring you to sprint to keep up.
